For over 15 years, FSU’s First Year Abroad (FYA) program has offered students the opportunity to spend their first year of college abroad at one of our four study centers! Spending three semesters abroad allows students to be fully immersed in the culture, history, and customs of another country. With an opportunity to switch locations over the summer semester, this experience is unparalleled in its ability to foster global citizens who have a unique understanding of what it truly means to live abroad. During the program, students can complete experiential learning credits, liberal studies courses, as well as language requirements and first-year prerequisites for most majors. ​

IDS2464Crossing the Atlantic: Lorca in America, Hemingway in Spain (online)

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. Furthermore, not only did each of these two compelling figures leave a deep footprint in the other´s country, but they were also influenced and greatly inspired by the socio-cultural patrimony of the other´s homeland. By studying and analyzing Lorca in America and Hemingway in Spain students will explore an inter-cultural journey that reaches the core of how many Spaniards view America and how many Americans view Spain to this day. In this course we will engage, explore and envision Lorca in America and Hemingway in Spain within the enriching comparative context regarding a number of points of analysis: socio-cultural identity and customs, the environment, ethnicity, sexual identity, religion, geography, the artistic merit versus the ethical complexities of the bullfight, human rights and the cruelties of warfare.

IDS3435Please Please Me: Anglo-American Youth Culture from the 1950s to the Present (online)

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.

IDS2464Crossing the Atlantic: Lorca in America, Hemingway in Spain (online)

Federico García Lorca and Ernest Hemingway are two of the most internationally recognized literary and cultural figures of the 20th century.

By studying and analyzing Lorca in America and Hemingway in Spain students will explore an inter-cultural journey that reaches the core of how many Spaniards view America and how many Americans view Spain to this day. In this course we will engage, explore and envision Lorca in America and Hemingway in Spain within the enriching comparative context regarding a number of points of analysis: socio-cultural identity and customs, the environment, ethnicity, sexual identity, religion, geography, the artistic merit versus the ethical complexities of the bullfight, human rights and the cruelties of warfare.

IDS3435Please Please Me: Anglo-American Youth Culture from the 1950s to the Present (online)

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.

IDS2464Crossing the Atlantic: Lorca in America, Hemingway in Spain (online)

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. Furthermore, not only did each of these two compelling figures leave a deep footprint in the other´s country, but they were also influenced and greatly inspired by the socio-cultural patrimony of the other´s homeland. By studying and analyzing Lorca in America and Hemingway in Spain students will explore an inter-cultural journey that reaches the core of how many Spaniards view America and how many Americans view Spain to this day. In this course we will engage, explore and envision Lorca in America and Hemingway in Spain within the enriching comparative context regarding a number of points of analysis: socio-cultural identity and customs, the environment, ethnicity, sexual identity, religion, geography, the artistic merit versus the ethical complexities of the bullfight, human rights and the cruelties of warfare.

IDS3435Please Please Me: Anglo-American Youth Culture from the 1950s to the Present (online)

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.

IDS3435Please Please Me: Anglo-American Youth Culture from the 1950s to the Present

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.

ARH4933Florentine Renaissance

The course is set against the historical background 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.

IDS2370Festivals: Artisanship, Satire, and Fire

In Western Humanity there is a long standing tradition of celebrations and festivals that manifest our roots as human beings. The author Anthony Burgess once stated that, “It’s always good to remember where you come from and celebrate it. To remember where you come from is part of where you are going.” Since pre-history, some celebrations stem from pagan origins, while others derived from organized religion backgrounds. This course will be a general Trans-Atlantic view of some celebrations and festivals that currently shape society, and individuals in the modern Western World. We will closely examine them from their historical roots, and how they have developed into international tourist attractions. Particular focus will emphasize how these events impact us a society locally, regionally, and globally. We will explore Autumn Festivals such as Oktoberfest, and those celebrations that mark the beginning of warm weather such as carnival in Venice and Rio de Janeiro. As we are in a unique area of Western Europe, attention will be given to Spain, yet with special emphasis on festivities in the city of Valencia. For example, the world famous Fallas festival, the “Tomatina festival in Buñol, or the running and swimming with the bulls in the town of Denia. Moreover , as The United States is a country with various cultural groups, we will study and analyze such celebrations in our country as: The Day of The Dead, Running of The Bulls, Quinceañeras, Mardi Gras Carnival, etc. In the final analysis, celebrations and festivities are some of the basic common links that we have while inhabiting this small planet, and a manifestation of global diversity and society.

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.

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

International Programs Insurance

All International Programs fees include international medical and evacuation insurance coverage through Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI). A link to our policy is provided below. The coverage will be effective for participants from the day the program starts until the day the program ends. Please note: this policy is NOT intended to replace your domestic coverage. For more information, visit studentinsurance.fsu.edu.

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.

Travel insurance is also offered through CISI and Travel Insured International. Please note that this plan must be purchased within 21 days of paying your commitment fee to International Programs.
