Tuition and Fees:
Walk the streets, ride the boats, and taste the dishes that have made Venice world renowned as a center of culture, visited by travelers from around the globe. The Venetian Republic lasted over a thousand years and was an international city of commerce, diplomacy, and art during the Renaissance period. You'll explore the nature of Venice's historical legacy of culture, economy, and society. Leave the crowded tourist zones to visit local neighborhoods, and use the fabric of the city itself (paving stones, street names, cisterns) to understand how Venetians have lived throughout the city's glorious history.
May apply for general education requirements in humanities, history major and minor, electives, and Italian Studies associate or certificate.

For your convenience, UMGC coordinates the hotel and excursion arrangements for a field study fee of $350 per student per field study course. This fee will be charged to your student account and covers three nights of lodging (double occupancy room), as well as local transportation costs and entry to all excursions.
The $350 fee does not include travel to and from the city where the course is held. Students must make their own travel arrangements to the course.
Please refer to the current course syllabus found on the schedule for details about course materials.
You may register for the 3 credit field study course with your local program coordinator or online at MyUMGC. Tuition assistance or financial aid can be applied toward tuition costs. For more information, contact the UMGC Field Study Office at CIV +49-(0)631-534-800, or e-mail email@example.com.
Before completing your travel plans, please verify with your local program coordinator or the Field Study Office at UMGC Europe Headquarters that the course will be held as scheduled. If you drop/withdraw from a field study course after the registration deadline, you will be charged a fee of $100.
A field study course packs all of the 48 contact-hours of other courses into adventure-filled days on location, so you can earn one to three credits at an accelerated pace. In addition, rather than taking place in an education center, a field study course takes place in a historical European city where the subject being studied has its roots. You will visit historical sites and museums as well as participate in lectures that bring it all together for a one-of-a-kind learning experience.
