Program Description: 
Earth & Environment in Italy is a field-based fall semester study abroad program for students interested in Earth system processes and their interactions with humans and the environment. The program is designed for students who are looking for a rigorous program built around field-based projects that focus on the interactions between the major earth systems: the lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere (including humans). Based out of the Osservatorio Geologico di Coldigioco, we take advantage of our central location in the Marche region of Italy to take extended field trips to study the Dolomites in the Italian Alps, the famous Carrara marbles of Tuscany and the rugged coastal settlements of neighboring Croatia. Students have additional opportunities to travel throughout Italy and neighboring countries as part of their independent research projects and on days off from the academic program. The program is administered by Luther College and open to all ACM students.
Program Cost for Luther Students: Luther students pay the Luther comprehensive fee.
The comprehensive fee covers tuition, room and board, and program travel. Contact the
Center for Global Learning if you have questions.
Program Cost for non-Luther Students: As an ACM shared program, the total amount
students must pay to participate in the Earth and Environment in Italy program varies
from college to college. Depending on the policies of your home college, charges for this
program may be based on the program’s cost, or may be based on your college’s tuition.
Contact your college's off-campus studies office for more information.
Additional Costs: Passport, Airfare, Independent Travel, and Personal Expenses
