Nazareth College offers one residential, exchange program with our partner university in Pescara, Italy, Universita degli Studi G. D'Annunzio. This program enables students to gain firsthand knowledge of contemporary Italy.  The curriculum offered through Pescara's program presents students with an understanding of Italian history, politics, and culture.

Italy has attracted millions of foreign visitors for centuries, with increasing numbers of students choosing to study there each year. Italy’s unique geography offers everything from majestic mountains to hundreds of miles of glorious coastline, tiny hilltop villages to glamorous, modern cities. Ideal for lovers of art, architecture and history, Italy has more United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Sites than any other country in the world.  In conjunction with classes, visits will be made to the many artistic and historical landmarks with possible group excursions to places such as Venice, Assisi, Florence, Naples, Capri, Pompeii, the Amalfi Coast and Tivoli.
