First Year Abroad

Apply

Study Abroad Your Freshman Year!

The First Year Abroad (FYA) program allows students to complete the first twelve months of their Florida State careers while studying abroad with International Programs. Students choose to spend their first year at any of our four year-round study centers: London, England; Florence, Italy; Panama City, Republic of Panama; Valencia, Spain. Participants may opt to change their location for the summer term and spend it at another study center, though visa restrictions apply for some locations.

Note: Students interested in science or engineering majors must choose the Florida State Panama, London, or Valencia program to meet their prerequisites.

Program Benefits and Rewards

  • FYA is designed for seamless continuation toward graduation.
  • Students take up to 49 credit hours over 12 months, beginning in the fall term.
  • Classes are taught in English, except for foreign language classes. Additionally, living among native speakers immeasurably aids Spanish or Italian skills.
  • Classes satisfy requirements of the Liberal Studies Program, many minors, and first-year prerequisites for most majors.
  • An academic advisor ensures students follow “mapping” for their majors.
  • First Year Abroad fulfills the summer residency required of Florida State students.
  • The rewards of being an FYA student continue upon return to the main campus. Upon completion of a minimum of 36 FSU credit hours at their European or Panama IP study center with an FSU GPA of 3.0 or better, FYA students who are in good judicial standing may qualify for out of state tuition waivers allowing students to pay in-state tuition rates for the remainder of their first undergraduate degree at Florida State in Tallahassee. After earning 14 credits in a semester, Florida residents (as determined by the FSU Office of Admissions) with a cumulative FYA GPA of 3.0 or better receive a $1,500 scholarship toward the next semester. (A savings of $3,000 if earned for both the Spring and Summer semesters!)

For a typical four-year degree, the savings could total $40,000 depending on the student’s study location.

Locations, Faculty, Classes

  • Each location’s resources—historical sites, art, libraries, museums, government, and professionals—are fully integrated into courses.
  • Faculty members have a passion not only for their subjects but for the cities, the cultures, and undergraduate teaching. International Programs faculty are by nature intellectually curious, globally conscious, energetic, and inspiring.
  • Small classes and personal attention create an intimate, liberal arts college atmosphere: no huge lecture classes, much more one-on-one instruction allowing the student a chance to grow and mature. Confidence, independence, and self-knowledge are chief rewards of this program.
  • FYA programs run concurrently with broad curriculum programs at each study center, so students share excursions, classes and other program components with upper division students. For more information about these corresponding programs, please visit the respective broad curriculum pages: Florence, London, Panama, Valencia.
  • Each study center also has its own website with additional information: Florence, Italy; London, England; Panama City, Panama; Valencia, Spain.

  • Fully admissible to Florida State (fall and summer admits only) and can apply on line at:

ARH4933Florentine Renaissance

he course is set against the historical backgrond of Florence and looks at art and architecture in the context of patronage; that of the church, the guilds, the merchants and the Medici, the ruling family of the city. The Renaissance produced outstanding artists such as Donatello, Botticelli, Verrocchio, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael; but these artists could not have existed without their patrons. It is this inter-connection which is our theme. The course will examine the emergence of Renaissance Florence via site visits to churches, palaces, museums and classroom sessions. The story is an unprecedented and excititng one: one small city produced a staggering array of artistic talent in a short period of time. Classical antiquity was the model, not only in artistic terms but in philosophical and political ones as well: Florence saw the rebirth of classical antiquity. The impact of that rebirth, that renaissance, still affects us today: our ways of thought, our ways of seeing are conditioned by that momentous period which changed the past forever, and ushered in the first modern era.

Much emphasis on discussion and on taking rambles to see what the authors and their readers might have seen. Each student will take a mid-term, will turn in 10 graded responses to the readings (and the rambles associated with them), and will take a cumulative final. The instructor, Prof. Dennis Moore of the FSU English Department, has taught at summer courses at the London Study Centre half a dozen times (for example, several weeks after he received FSU’s University Distinguished Teacher Award), and he's looking forward!

HUM3930Special Topics: Food and Drink of Italy

Amid the profusion of food shows on TV and other media, one point is made consistently: to understand a culture and its people one needs to understand its food and drink. Italy is a particularly rich country for such investigation because of its culinary diversity. Despite Risorgimento or Unità d'Italia which established the single state of the Kingdom of Italy in 1861 and created something like a unified national consciousness with the annexation of Papal Rome in 1870, Italy remains, to this day, a collection of regions with pronounced cultural differences, particularly between the north and the south, which is reflected in innumerable local dialects, if not different languages, and local cuisines. The far north of the Alto Adige, Tyrolean Italy, retains strong ties to Austria, and more German is spoken there than Italian; and in the far south, the great island of Sicily has Greek temples and monuments as fine as those in Athens, and its cuisine has strong Mediterranean and African influences. And although Italian cuisines currently intermingle, the north remains a more a rice focused cuisine, the south more a pasta cuisine; the north, like Austria and Switzerland, features more butter based cooking, the south is more olive oil based. Italy is, furthermore, home of the Slow Food movement, an organization that promotes local food and traditional cooking techniques. Founded by Carlo Petrini in Italy in 1986, the anti-fast food movement has since gone global. And of course, Italy is the world’s largest producer of wines, and so among the largest consumer of wines, and we will pay careful attention to wine culture, with particular attention to how to taste and evaluate wine. Italy has some 590 distinct grape varieties planted in more than 500 different areas. We will study the food and drink culture of Italy, concentrating on Florence and Tuscany but expanding to other regions. We will taste and learn to cook some of the foods of Italy, learn how and when to drink coffee, understand Italy’s bitter aperitivi and digestivi, and learn to respect wine not so much as a beverage but as another food.

IFS3091The Culture is in the Cuisine-The Food of Italy

Italy’s great variety of gastronomic traditions makes the country’s culinary heritage extraordinarily rich and unique. This course will explore the cultural history of Italian cuisine from the medieval period to contemporary times. We will examine how culinary practices and the culture of food are essential elements of “Italian” identity. Students will experience the historical evolution of food and discover how gastronomy is interwoven into all aspects of Italian social life and culture. Through a mixture of first-hand experience in and around Florence and Tuscany (excursions to local food markets, such as the San Lorenzo Market, and to wine and cheese producers) and interpretative analysis (study of classic food texts, written assignments, and class discussion), students’ epicurean travels will include regional explorations into cuisine, the craftsman-like nature of food and wine, and the ethic of food and consumerism as depicted in the Slow Food Revolution.

IND3930Special Topics: Sketching the City

In this course entitled Sketching the City, you will discover an awareness of and an appreciation for the strong design input, inventiveness, and sense of style exhibited in the design, architecture, and planning of the spaces and places that define Florence and its rural and urban neighbors by recording its visual richness through sketching and drawing. The story of Italian Design is interwoven with its national history, Italy – the Land of Design – and this will become our classroom with its built environment and material culture serving as our textbook. You will learn quick sketch techniques to visually facilitate documenting your study abroad experience and understand how graphically recording a journey can significantly impact your recollection of moments and memories. In addition to the Florence Program’s broad-curriculum excursions, this class also includes on-site lectures and daytrips to visit world-class art museums and galleries as well as the renowned architecture and interiors that are Florence. There will be required drawing materials for this class which are easily transportable overseas and can also be purchased in Florence.

IFS2099Physics Of Sustainability (Natural Science)

Sustainability and physics are complex topics and are both interrelated with a concept that is not easy to explain: energy which is a fundamental natural resource. Sustainability is that quality everyone, humans in the name of other species, must search for and attain in order to conserve a balance between the natural resources available to all and their use by an ever growing population of living creatures. Physics and physical sciences in general help us to see nature and the processes of nature we have been able to describe so far, by means of rational simple models and in languages we could understand. By understanding simple processes of nature we can use physics and other physical sciences to form ourselves a broad picture of nature when it is driven beyond its own balance and what we humans should do to bring back that balance. In this course we examine the interrelations of human dynamics and natural processes related to energy production, transformation, transfer and exhaust and its relation to the use of natural resources and the utilization of natural resources for goods we needed for consumption. Other essential aspects on these interrelations such as education, health and economic development into sustainability will also be discussed.

ARH4933Florentine Renaissance

he course is set against the historical backgrond of Florence and looks at art and architecture in the context of patronage; that of the church, the guilds, the merchants and the Medici, the ruling family of the city. The Renaissance produced outstanding artists such as Donatello, Botticelli, Verrocchio, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael; but these artists could not have existed without their patrons. It is this inter-connection which is our theme. The course will examine the emergence of Renaissance Florence via site visits to churches, palaces, museums and classroom sessions. The story is an unprecedented and excititng one: one small city produced a staggering array of artistic talent in a short period of time. Classical antiquity was the model, not only in artistic terms but in philosophical and political ones as well: Florence saw the rebirth of classical antiquity. The impact of that rebirth, that renaissance, still affects us today: our ways of thought, our ways of seeing are conditioned by that momentous period which changed the past forever, and ushered in the first modern era.

IFS2099Please Please Me: Anglo-American Youth Culture

This e-course will examine the cultures that young Britons and Americans have produced and shared for nearly a century. With origins in the 1920s but first identified by advertisers and sociologists in the 1940s, the United States is the birthplace of a phenomenon produced by the consumer society, mass media and a widening generation gap. Yet, Britain has one of the most innovative and vibrant youth cultures in the world, which has come to define post-colonial British identity and has helped to make London the cultural and commercial capital of Europe. This course will examine the history, sociology, aesthetics and economics of British youth culture, from the early days of jazz and rock ‘n’ roll, through to Beatlemania, Punk, Hip Hop and the latest contemporary developments in EDM. How was British youth culture formed, to what extent is it different from America’s - and what does that tell us about larger differences between the two countries? To answer these questions, the course looks at the impact which the black and white cultures of America have had on Britain, as well as charting the influence of Europe, the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, and indigenous British folk traditions. The unique fusion created from these elements is set in the context of social change in the second half of the 20th century, primarily: class mobility, female independence, black migration, technological progress and the birth of the consumer society. As well as amplifying the creative relationship between music, fashion, cinema, art and design, the course will assess their links with business and the media, showing how underground cults become mainstream culture and how moral panics are turned into material profits. Taught through lectures, film and TV screenings and group discussion, this e-course will not only benefit students majoring in the arts and social sciences but also those in business and communications. This course will satisfy the Liberal Studies area of Social Sciences.

IFS2099Understanding Religion; Understanding People

The course is designed to introduce the student to the main religious traditions of Britain in terms of their historical appearance and development, and of the social and legal responses made to them. Students will be introduced to a variety of theoretical approaches to the understanding of religion drawn from theology, History of Religion, anthropology, sociology and philosophy. They will study and critique traditional descriptions of religions as systems of beliefs and practices as presented by the religions themselves and by encyclopedic resources. Students will be encouraged to formulate a battery of investigative approaches to considering an actual religious tradition in its context, for example instead of what do Jews believe? and what are some Jewish religious practices?, they might ask what effect has being a minority in England had on Jewish beliefs and practices? or has the Jewish experience in England anything to teach us about attitudes to subsequent religious migration to the country? An essential component of the course will be knowledge of, and contact with, living faiths and their representatives. This will be done through a study of film and other cultural representations and field trips to places of worship and sites of memory. Students will be equipped to interview practitioners and think behind the presentations made by them. The intention and rationale of the course is to provide students with tools and frameworks of understanding to approach and assess the increasingly problematic activity of religion in the modern world, and to recognize that religious expression provides a valuable route into understanding the values, attitudes and aspirations of most communities. This course fulfills the Liberal Studies Ethics requirement.

IFS2099Biodiversity and the Expansion of Peri-Urban Spaces

Drastic changes in land use, especially those associated to urban sprawl are altering the dynamics of natural ecosystems and thus biodiversity. Some of the consequences are observed in the increased vulnerability to environmental hazards of peri-urban dwellers and other species, driven to share their new inter-connected spaces. The alteration of natural environments often brings fragmentation and degradation of habitats of native species, prompting unwelcome effects on the composition of their population and their survival strategies. Examples of the outcomes of such changes are the loss of feeding and breeding grounds; loss of genetic variability; overall vulnerability of species and populations; introduction or establishment of exotic species; displacement of non-human species into urban environments, thus exposing both peri-urban populations and other species to increased health vulnerability and related risks. The spread of diseases is an example of such risk. Based on scientific-grounded case studies the students will learn the basics of conservation of biodiversity and identify the impacts of human actions in the surrounding natural environs. Working with case studies centered on addressing key concerns within the realms anchoring this topic will stimulate critical thinking and writing. Outcomes of this E-Series course are case studies and the writing of scientific reports and proposals for action. This course satisfies the Liberal Studies Social Sciences requirement.

IFS2099Biodiversity and the Expansion of Peri-Urban Spaces (Social Science)

Drastic changes in land use, especially those associated to urban sprawl are altering the dynamics of natural ecosystems and thus biodiversity. Some of the consequences are observed in the increased vulnerability to environmental hazards of peri-urban dwellers and other species, driven to share their new inter-connected spaces. The alteration of natural environments often brings fragmentation and degradation of habitats of native species, prompting unwelcome effects on the composition of their population and their survival strategies. Examples of the outcomes of such changes are the loss of feeding and breeding grounds; loss of genetic variability; overall vulnerability of species and populations; introduction or establishment of exotic species; displacement of non-human species into urban environments, thus exposing both peri-urban populations and other species to increased health vulnerability and related risks. The spread of diseases is an example of such risk. Based on scientific-grounded case studies the students will learn the basics of conservation of biodiversity and identify the impacts of human actions in the surrounding natural environs. Working with case studies centered on addressing key concerns within the realms anchoring this topic will stimulate critical thinking and writing.

IFS2099Panama's Religious Melting Pot

The Republic of Panama is proud of its reputation as a Crisol de las Razas Melting Pot of the Races. It is also a Crisol de las Religiones. Besides many Catholic churches, Panama City has synagogues, mosques, Hindu and Buddhist temples and one of only seven Baha temples in the world. Despite this, there is only some basic information included in tourist information sites about our religious diversity. There is not one single web-site that offers a comprehensive guide to worship in Panama City. In this course, students will collaborate to produce such a web-site. First, students will study theories about the nature of religious worship, in particular Joseph Bulbulia’s theory that religious worship is a means of signaling commitments. Then, students will be divided into small groups, each of which would study a particular place of worship. Students will use documentary sources to study the religion in question, and in particular the history of that religious community in Panama, and aim to interview at least one religious minister and one member of the congregation, and take photographs, videos, etc. (with permission). Then, all the groups will work together to produce an integrated web-site that presents all of the major sites of worship in Panama City. As well as offering a guide to Panama´s religious diversity, the site will include reflections on possible religious unity: do all the different religious communities in Panama share a common Panamanian identity, and if so, how is that manifested? The goal will be to produce a web-site that will be the natural starting point for anyone who wants to research religion in Panama, combining objective analysis with students’ reflections. This course satisfies the Liberal Studies Humanities and Cultural Practice requirement.

IFS2099Panama's Religious Melting Pot (Humanities, x)

The Republic of Panama is proud of its reputation as a Crisol de las Razas Melting Pot of the Races. It is also a Crisol de las Religiones. Besides many Catholic churches, Panama City has synagogues, mosques, Hindu and Buddhist temples and one of only seven Baha temples in the world. Despite this, there is only some basic information included in tourist information sites about our religious diversity. There is not one single web-site that offers a comprehensive guide to worship in Panama City. In this course, students will collaborate to produce such a web-site. First, students will study theories about the nature of religious worship, in particular Joseph Bulbulia’s theory that religious worship is a means of signaling commitments. Then, students will be divided into small groups, each of which would study a particular place of worship. Students will use documentary sources to study the religion in question, and in particular the history of that religious community in Panama, and aim to interview at least one religious minister and one member of the congregation, and take photographs, videos, etc. (with permission). Then, all the groups will work together to produce an integrated web-site that presents all of the major sites of worship in Panama City. As well as offering a guide to Panama´s religious diversity, the site will include reflections on possible religious unity: do all the different religious communities in Panama share a common Panamanian identity, and if so, how is that manifested? The goal will be to produce a web-site that will be the natural starting point for anyone who wants to research religion in Panama, combining objective analysis with students’ reflections. Fulfills Liberal Studies Humanities and Cultural Practice requirement.

IFS2099Crossing the Atlantic: Hemingway in Spain; Lorca in Americas

Federico García Lorca and Ernest Hemingway are two of the most internationally recognized literary and cultural figures of the 20th century. That is, not only are they viewed with great interest and even division and controversy in their birth countries of Spain and the United States respectively, but they continue to cast a long shadow across the globe and especially over the Atlantic.

IFS2099Crossing the Atlantic: Hemingway in Spain; Lorca in Americas

Federico García Lorca and Ernest Hemingway are two of the most internationally recognized literary and cultural figures of the 20th century. That is, not only are they viewed with great interest and even division and controversy in their birth countries of Spain and the United States respectively, but they continue to cast a long shadow across the globe and especially over the Atlantic.

Money Matters

The biggest factor in deciding when and where to study abroad is often the financial aspect. In fact, too many students assume they cannot afford to participate, missing out on an invaluable opportunity because they are not aware of alternative methods of funding. The Financial Assistance Coordinator at International Programs (IP) is dedicated to helping students through the financial aid application process by conducting financial aid workshops on a regular basis in addition to meeting personally with each student needing assistance. Students who have received some form of financial aid throughout their collegiate careers, as well as those completely new to the process, receive expert care every step of the way. We also help concerned parents! Additionally, students are strongly encouraged to contact the Financial Aid Office at their home school as early as possible. Finally, Florida State students will find additional helpful information on the FSU Financial Aid website.

Please review Understanding the Financial Aid Process for Students Studying Abroad to explore a range of issues for students who anticipate receiving any type of financial assistance. This is a document created just for FSU IP students and families, with step-by-step guidance for the process.

Florida-Costa Rica Linkage Institute

The Florida-Costa Rica Linkage Institute, known as FLORICA, was created in 1986, authorized by the Florida Legislature in 1987, and formalized by an agreement signed by the State University System of Florida, the Florida Community College System and the Council of Rectors of Costa Rican Universities (CONARE). Since its beginning, FLORICA has been administered for Costa Rica by CONARE and on behalf of the State of Florida by The Florida State University and Valencia College, with co-directors appointed from each institution.

FLORICA has strong credibility both in Florida and Costa Rica as a stimulus and a catalyst. The Institute has interfaced broadly in Costa Rica with public and private institutions and agencies including all the public universities.

Costa Rican citizens who have applied and been accepted in a Florida public university or community college may apply for out-of-state tuition waivers through the Florida-Costa Rica Institute Non-Resident Tuition Exemption Program.

Florida-France Linkage Institute

The Florida-France Linkage Institute was created by the Legislature of the State of Florida in 1989. Over the years, the scope of activities and outreach of the Institute have grown considerably; in Florida, in France, and in the départments of the French Caribbean. The Florida-France Linkage Institute is administered by The University of South Florida in partnership with Florida State University and Miami-Dade College. The educational mission of each of these institutions lends an unusual and unique diversity to the joint co-sponsorship of the Florida-France Linkage Institute. The Florida-France Linkage Institute is supported on behalf of France by the office of the French Consulate-General in Miami.

The Florida-France Linkage Institute utilizes the resources of the State University System and the Community College System. The Institute also serves as a clearinghouse for inter-institutional and community networking to bring projects and activities to college and university campuses.

Thus, the Florida-France Linkage Institute places a high priority on its mission to serve as a facilitator for international tourism, trade, economic development, and business for the Office of Tourism, Trade and Economic Development (OTTED).

Program applicants who have demonstrated their intent of continued participation in the program by payment or deferral of the confirmation deposit and participation in the first semester of the program, and who have not provided written notice of their intent to withdraw from the program at least sixty days in advance of the beginning of any subsequent semester remain fully liable for all remaining program fees.

Tuition Policy for Out-of-state students

Upon completion of a minimum of 36 FSU credit hours at their European or Panama IP study center with an FSU GPA of 3.0 or better, and having met all financial obligations related to participation in the First Year Abroad program, out-of-state students will be assessed in-state tuition rates for the remainder of their first undergraduate degree at FSU in Tallahassee. This arrangement is contingent upon the student remaining in good academic and judicial standing throughout their FSU career. Students must attend consecutive semesters without interruption (summer terms excluded), progressing toward their degree completion, and staying "on map".

Refunds of program fees WILL BE granted in instances of withdrawal prior to the start of the program under the following circumstances:

  1. Cancellation of program by International Programs

  3. Death of the student or death in the immediate family (parent, legal guardian, spouse, child, or sibling)

Refunds of program fees will not be granted where a student becomes ineligible to participate in a program for failure to meet or maintain admission requirements.

Partial Refunds of Program Fees

Partial refunds of program fees MAY BE granted in instances of withdrawal prior to the start of the program under the following circumstances:

  1. Illness of the student of such duration or severity that it precludes overseas travel. The student will be required to submit all relevant medical records for review and evaluation by Florida State's University Health Services. University Health Services will advise International Programs’ refund committee of its recommendation. International Programs’ refund committee will notify the student of the decision.
  2. Exceptional circumstances that could not have been foreseen and were beyond the control of the student, as approved by the International Programs’ refund committee.
    • Timely notification in relation to the event that caused the need for withdrawal will be considered in evaluating refund requests. In no instance will a request be considered if it is made after the end of the semester for which the refund is requested.
    • Refunds cannot be granted, under any circumstances, in instances of withdrawal after a program has begun.
    • Applicants who apply and are accepted after the published due dates remain liable for fees in accordance with the published due dates.
  3. Rescission of admission by the Florida State University Office of Admission for failure to meet the conditions of one’s admission. Students whose admission offer to Florida State University is rescinded after the confirmation deposit is paid or deferred (in accordance with the due date) remain fee liable for the confirmation deposit

Health & Safety

For sixty years, Florida State University's International Programs has been committed to providing a rewarding academic and cultural experience that enriches the lives of our students. Our highest priority is and always has been the welfare and security of our students.

Program directors maintain contact with our Tallahassee office, local authorities, and United States officials, both at home and abroad. Each program holds meetings with students in which safety procedures and precautions are detailed and regularly re-emphasized. Each program has an Emergency Plan which includes details about local health care facilities, meeting points and procedures, and contingency plans and funds should it ever become necessary to evacuate our students.

Students are reminded to inform International Programs of the details of their independent travel details via our online travel form, heed US State Department travel advisories, and take relevant emergency and US Embassy/Consulate contact information with them.

Students venture abroad to experience other cultures, and to gain a deeper appreciation of their role as American citizens in the world. FSU International Programs is fully committed to helping students realize these aspirations in a safe and secure learning environment.

Insurance

Travel Insurance Information

FSU International Programs encourages program participants to consider purchasing travel insurance. Travel insurance comes in many forms and can protect you in case you need to change your travel plans due to unforeseen circumstances. The coverage ranges from help with lost baggage to delay in flight plans to trip cancellation.

Travel insurance that covers fees associated with changing your airfare plans is especially helpful for those attending programs that require entry or student visas. Immigration approval can take months with regulations changing often that can cause the need to delay or cancel flight plans. Often airfare arrangements are non-refundable or cannot be changed without fee penalties. Certain types of trip cancellation insurance will reimburse you the cost of your airfare or penalty fees. Travel Insurance must cover failure to obtain visa.

You may wish to begin researching travel insurance and trip cancellation policies by using the Travel Insurance Review website. Their Travel Insurance 101: The Complete Guide to Travel Insurance section is particularly helpful for those just beginning their research. They also have a section that allows you to compare different policies.
