While SRISA is best known as an Art and Design school, at least 40% of students come to SRISA are not Art or Design majors and choose SRISA because of the vast array of lecture course available in many different areas such as Art History, History, Sociology, Psychology, Italian Culture, Literature and much more. Lecture courses when possible take advantage of the city of Florence and Italy in general to experience the materials being learned first hand.

Highlighted Areas of Study:

Art History

Santa Reparata offers students the opportunity to study art history in a city that possesses an extraordinarily rich artistic heritage. The art history courses at Santa Reparata give students a strong understanding of the development of Western art, allowing students to study many of the most significant European works firsthand at world-renowned museums like the Uffizi and Palazzo Pitti, as well as at the various churches and palazzi throughout the city.

History

History courses at Santa Reparata introduce students to the Italian history from the origin of the Italian power in Europe, the formation of the European identity in the 8th century, until the modern times; through the most prominent phases of the Italian history, such as the unification (Risorgimento) in the 19th century up until the present.

Italian Language

The SRISA courses offer a full-immersion language program where class lessons are taught in Italian from the first day. This method exposes students immediately to the language and develops listening and speaking skills. Even a minimal amount of language will open a door to Italian thought and culture in a very direct way and make the whole Italian experience richer and more fulfilling. Learning Italian brings students closer to the culture and the city where they are living.
