  • Study Abroad

SAAHP offers undergraduate and graduate semester, winter/summer, and short-term study abroad opportunities. We also are involved in exchange relationships with global partner universities and firms that bring students, visiting critics and visiting faculty to the school, and vice versa.

Undergraduate semester programs are based in Florence at the Institute for Fine and Liberal Arts at Palazzo Rucellai, where all SAAHP majors can study during their junior or senior year.  Undergraduate Students may also  participate in Yokohama National University’s Japan Overseas Year (JOY) Program. The School offers graduate study abroad and exchanges in architecture with the leading universities in major cities around the world through our Global Partners Program, in:

Argentina—Universidad Torcuato di Tella, Buenos Aires (Fall 2010, Fall 2012)
