The Multi Destination internship program is a multi-country study abroad experience, which enables students to live an intercultural experience in two different countries within the same semester while developing their global citizenship.
Both semester study abroad programs start in Siena, Italy at the Siena Italian Studies study center where students spend the first 6 weeks of the program. Staff and professors with Siena Italian studies are leaders in Europe when it comes to study abroad and intercultural communication. Students will build a strong foundation of intercultural competence in Siena that will be key to the success during the internships that follow.
