What is CCIS?

sQuola's Center for Cultural and Italian Studies (CCIS) offers a rich program of cultural events and activities throughout the year for both students and the general public.

 

Every November, FUA and SUNY Stony Brook host a themed multidisciplinary conference at the sQuola facilities. Past themes have included Futurism, Cultural Integration and the Digital Renaissance and have gathered academics and professionals from both the US and Italy.

 

The CCIS lecture series is part of the intensive language program and is also open to the general public. Every week, CCIS offers a short lecture and discussion on a current cultural, social, or political theme followed by discussion. Please consult the event calendar as the same lecture is often offered both in English and Italian. The CCIS film series is part of the intensive language program and is also open to the general public. Italian films are shown weekly with a commentary in an amphitheater-style auditorium. Please consult the calendar for film titles and synopses.

 

Student Academic Invovlement

 

sQuola has partnered with the Italian state university Università degli Studi di Firenze for conversation exchange projects between international and Italian students during the Fall and Spring semesters. In addition, conversation exchange opportunities for all FUA students regardless of major/study are available throughout the year through the Student Life Department (SLD).

 

Get Involved in Experiential Learning!

 

In addition to courses that are already academically involved at CCIS, anyone who seeks a professionalizing experience can get involved as well. Through enrollment in Learn and Serve courses, team members may assist with the areas of CCIS operations and management. Learn and Serve is fully taught, supervised and coordinated by instructors and offers the unique experience of professional integration and development for all individuals, whether they be students, alumni, or members of the local community. Courses may be enrolled on a credit or non-credit basis. CCIS, like its fellow CEMI, is a window to the local community in Florence. It is a space where students can demonstrate FUA’s cultural mission to the public, by sharing the styles of Florence that extend beyond cultural stereotypes.
