A Florentine Dream: Four Months in Italia…

Just ask Sara Di Pesa, of Hingham, Mass., who spent a semester studying at the Lorenzo de Medici-Art Institute of Florence. Ask her about Florence, and she'll tell you about the food, the fun and the memories.

Study Abroad…

The Study Abroad/Study Away program at Colby-Sawyer provides students the opportunity to acquire broad cultural knowledge and practical skills which will enable them to participate fully in a global society and to contribute to the internationalization of the Colby-Sawyer campus through academically demanding domestic and international programs.

International Field Study Trips

Colby-Sawyer faculty members are encouraged to incorporate an optional international field trip component to classes when applicable. In this way, learning is taken out of the classroom and into the global arena, thereby giving students the opportunity to participate first-hand in the cultural context they study in the classroom.

In May 2011, students traveled to Germany for 10 days with Professor Gibbs-Riley to visit design studios, museums and architecture that exemplify the industrial design they will have studied in her survey course on European design and culture.
