Meredith’s beautiful site in the heart of Tuscany offers students, faculty, alumnae, and friends an opportunity to experience authentic Italian life. After more than three decades of partnership with this warm and welcoming town, the Meredith community calls Sansepolcro its Italian home. Students can study abroad in Sansepolcro through semester, summer, or spring break options.  Watch a video about the Meredith in Italy program.

Meredith in Italy Fall Semester

The Meredith in Italy Fall semester program is open to all majors and is ideal for students in their sophomore year. You do not need prior Italian language in order to apply.


You will live and study together with other Meredith program students and faculty in the 16th century Palazzo Alberti, our beautiful study abroad site in Sansepolcro, Italy. Watch a virtual tour of the Palazzo Alberti.


Meredith students who participate can completely fulfill the foreign language general education requirement. The program offers a full semester of general education credits taught by local Italian experts, along with special discipline-specific courses taught by rotating Meredith Faculty in Residence.

Travel Opportunities

As part of the program, you will complete a one-credit “Learn to Travel/Travel to Learn” course to become a confident international traveler. The program also includes group excursions and built-in independent travel breaks, where you may apply your skills and explore Italy or other countries in Europe.


Semester cost includes Meredith College on-campus tuition, fees, room, and board, plus a Study Abroad Fee. Additional expenses include round-trip airfare, books, independent travel, and miscellaneous personal expenses. Upon approval of study abroad, Meredith students are eligible to use aid towards program costs. Significant additional scholarships are available to help defray costs. Non-Meredith students should speak with their home campus study abroad coordinators for updated cost information.
