Where You'll Study

Students choose to take classes at our partner institution, Santa Reparata International School of Art (SRISA), or at both SRISA and the CEA Florence Center. The CEA Florence Center offers a variety of courses that allow you to explore all that Florence has to offer, with your professors as guides. Classes are small, taught in English, and take full advantage of the city just beyond our doors. Experiential learning opportunities outside the classroom are plentiful and bring lessons to life, exposing you to new perspectives and starting you on your journey toward global citizenship. SRISA is one of Florence’s leading schools in studio art and design for English-speakers. Professors of art practice in their field, and will instruct you with up-to-date methods, techniques, and ideas. Students will receive a transcript from Maryville University for SRISA courses and - if opted for a CEA course - also from the University of New Haven, CEA’s School of Record, upon completion of their program.
