  • Expand Your Horizons: Study Abroad


    Before the global pandemic changed the world dramatically, nearly 100 Farmingdale students annually participated in the Study Abroad program. The program is now up and running again, and looking for interested students.

    Students who enroll in the 2023 Study Abroad course will travel to Florence, Italy this summer. They will savor the history, art, thought, and pleasure of Florence by studying the work of Florentine political philosopher Niccolò Machiavelli (1469-1527) and situating his work within the Italian Renaissance. Many have argued that it is neither Locke, nor Rousseau, nor Hamilton, but the Florence-based philosopher Niccolò Machiavelli (1469-1527) who is most responsible for the framework of our modern republics and way of life.

    Once in Florence, students will begin by visiting the residence of the powerful Medici family, to whom Machiavelli’s initial work, The Prince, is addressed. As they read Machiavelli’s major work, The Prince, together, they will have the extraordinary opportunity to visit the tombs of Machiavelli, Michelangelo, Galileo, and others.

    According to Philosophy Professor Dr. Travis Holloway, who will be teaching the Study Abroad course, students interested in enjoying this experience, must apply on Axiom by March 15. They will be enrolled in two courses  — PHI 205 – Ethics — and a course of their choice taught by a Florence University of the Arts professor. Please also contact the Study Abroad program at studyabroad@farmingdale.edu and visit www.farmingdale.edu/studyabroad for information on studying at Florence University of the Arts.
