In spring 2013, GEO launched a new program in Sorrento, Italy in collaboration with Study Abroad Italy (SAI) and the Sant’Anna Institute-Sorrento Lingue (SASL). The program is open to all majors and all classes (from 2nd semester first-year students through senior year). Students are accompanied by a PSU faculty-in-residence, who teaches 2 PSU courses. Students take Italian Language and 2 additional courses from the SASL course offerings. A number of excursions are included in the program such as trips to Vesuvius, Tuscany, Umbria, Cuma & Pozzuoli, Pompeii and Naples. Students live in shared apartments in the heart of Sorrento and within minutes walking distance to SASL. Deadline for applications for Spring 2014 is October 30, 2013.
