All TnCIS programs are academic in nature and course work that takes advantage of the program location will be the central focus. Programs offered by TnCIS through any member institution are in keeping with SACSCOC policies for each respective institution where compliance is monitored at the institutional level. TnCIS program courses are for credit only.
In Italy, students will enroll in ONE course. For more information about each of these courses, including pre-requisites and syllabi, use the button provided below.
In cities abundantly rich with culture, history, and beauty, students will truly be immersed in a living breathing, learning laboratory. Classes are held amidst awe-inspiring art and architecture, and stunning historical ruins that influenced Western Civilizations throughout history. Courses offered will incorporate the Italian people, varied land and seascapes, history, art, and culture by total immersion into a riveting, unique and exciting study abroad experience.
Please Note: Prospective students should be aware of the physical exertion that study abroad programs require. For example, there is a great deal of walking. You should be prepared to walk five or more miles per day over uneven, possibly slippery or rocky terrain even in cities. You will also be required to carry your bags through busy airports, train stations, and metro stops, not to mention various flights of stairs.
