Study abroad opportunities


Study sociology in Italy

The Siena School offers you a semester-track program with a list of classes that are pre-approved for Northern Arizona University students. You will take an intensive Italian language and culture course depending upon your level. Siena School also offers three and four week winter and summer programs.

Siena sociology internship

If you participate in the internship course, you’ll apply the theoretical knowledge you get in this classroom to providing a service in one of many locations around Siena, such as a home for the elderly or a center for psychiatric rehabilitation.

Internship requirements

If you choose to do a sociology internship, you must have at least an intermediate level of Italian language skills. If you don’t have an advanced enough level of Italian, you may complete a comparable research project on a topic in conjunction with a professor from the program.
