Are you interested in studying abroad in Berlin, Tuscany, the UK, or the Netherlands with the Department of Urban Design & Planning next summer? We are hosting three study abroad opportunities and the applications are live! We’ll be hosting a number of information sessions coming up in early January.
The programs are open to students in all majors. Details can be found on the websites linked below.

If you are interested in urban systems, transportation, art, history, or social justice — this is the program for you! We will be living in apartment-style housing in Kreuzberg, a hip and gritty neighborhood full of street art, thrift shops and laid-back cafes. Half of our time will be spent in the classroom, and half of our time will be spent at site visits with guest lecturers all around the city.

We will start our trip in Florence, head south to a private villa in Montepulciano for two weeks, and wrap up the trip at the UW Rome Center. We will take daily excursions to meet with local farmers and artisans and play an active part in the production process.
