The Italian Studies Florence Center Minor is concerned with the culture of Italy from ancient times to the present. The minor is built around the student's program of studies at The Florida State University Florence Study Center, allowing the student to pursue the minor before, during, and after the student attends the Florence Program. The minor gives greater focus to, and enhances the quality of, the students program of studies in Italy. The sojourn in Florence is the essential element in the minor, providing direct involvement in contemporary Italian civilization as well as exposure to Italys historical cultural artifacts.
