To apply you must be a currently-enrolled, degree-seeking undergraduate UW-Eau Claire student. You must be in good academic standing and have a minimum cumulative resident GPA of 2.8. You may apply as a freshman but must have sophomore standing prior to participating.
You will choose from classes offered at your LdM campus during the term you are attending. The Florence campus is the original LdM campus and offers the widest course selection; the Rome and Tuscania campuses are much smaller, with correspondingly small course offerings. Please note that the Three Cities program offers a set curriculum of four-five courses which all students must take.
Specific summer course offerings are typically available in October. Fall courses are available in February. Winterim and spring courses are available the semester prior to departure.
Semester-long students must take a minimum of 12 and may take a maximum of 15 credits, including one required Italian language class. Summer session students must take 6 credits. Winterim students must take 3 credits.
LdM courses that have been evaluated for UWEC credit will appear, in alphabetical order by the LdM “School Subject”. If a course that you find on the LdM website does not appear on the list, it has not yet been evaluated for UWEC credit.
Please keep in mind that this is a historical record of past course equivalences. There is no guarantee that the same courses will be offered in the future, or that they will be offered during the term in which you are abroad.
FOREIGN LANGUAGE/FOREIGN CULTURE REQUIREMENT
Upon successful completion of this program, students who have gone for a semester fulfill the complete Foreign Culture requirement, while summer or winterim students can request that three credits of the requirement be waived. If you successfully complete an Italian language class during a summer program, an additional three credits of the Foreign Culture requirement can be waived. Please email Degree Review at firstname.lastname@example.org after completion of the program to update your degree audit. (Students earning a B.A., B.F.A. or B.M degree in the College of Arts & Sciences cannot use study abroad to fulfill their foreign language/foreign culture requirement. See the university catalog for details.)
You may study at a Lorenzo de' Medici campus for either semester, the full academic year, or summer or winterim. Exact dates will be available the semester prior to departure.
Please see the LdM website for details and updates.
