Howard Community College in Columbia, Maryland is pleased to offer a Study Abroad program in Tuscany with the opportunity to earn college credit while living in self-catering apartments in the historic center of Florence. Included in the program are planned excursions to Fiesole, Siena, San Gimignano, Rome and a cooking class at a famous culinary school in Florence.
The program is open to students and community members on either a credit or non-credit basis.

The program is designated to have a balance of planned and open time to allow participants to pursue their areas of interest.
