UNH-in-Italy Study Abroad

Since 2002, UNH in Italy has offered a study abroad opportunity for students interested in a unique Italian immersion experience.    

UNH in Italy is the only year-round American university program in Ascoli Piceno and provides an opportunity to experience a piece of the real Italy that few foreigners ever see.  Participants enjoy an authentic Italian experience while still keeping them well connected to national and European transportation networks.The UNH-in-Italy "campus" is located in the beautiful, medieval city of Ascoli Piceno, Italy.  Located in the province of the Marche (pronounced MAR-kay), Ascoli Piceno is an unspoiled provincial capital, enjoying much of the cultural richness and vibrancy of larger cities, while preserving the charm and authenticity of a medieval city off the usual tourist itinerary.

UNH-in-Italy's curriculum explores the many dimensions of the Italian food system, allowing students to simultaneously study and experience the country's food culture & history, agricultural practices, and food traditions. Students will also have the opportunity to explore concepts related to the sustainability of the food system.

We offer a semester-long experience or a 5-week, intensive summer term.
