Cornell in Turin is a short-term study-abroad summer program designed for students who wish to learn about modern European politics and policy debates and to immerse themselves in an Italian city with a remarkable history and culture.
The interdisciplinary program consists of two consecutive, three-credit courses:
- GOVT 3323 European Politics
- PAM 3620 Population Controversies in Europe and the U.S.
Students may enroll in one or both of these courses. Both courses are taught in English, by Cornell faculty, with guest lectures by Italian English-speaking faculty, and hosted by the Einaudi Foundation in Palazzo d'Azeglio in Turin's historic center.
The program also includes extracurricular activities and excursions in Turin and the Piedmont region. Read more about the city of Turin.
Cornell in Turin is coordinated by the School of Continuing Education and Summer Sessions at Cornell University, in partnership with the Departments of Government and Policy Analysis and Management at Cornell, the Luigi Einaudi Foundation in Turin, and the Municipality of Dogliani in Piedmont, Italy.
Participants in the program will also be able to apply for a limited number of internships with community-building non-profit organizations in Turin, lasting anywhere from two and six weeks.
