Summer 2021 Online

Summer 2021 courses online via eLearning


In addition to offering our exceptional in-residence study abroad experience in Sorrento, several popular Sant’Anna courses will now be available online to provide students with distance learning options for the Summer I and II 2021 terms.

Students interested in an online option will appreciate the interactive and robust mix of live and video lectures delivered by experienced and expert instructors, virtual field trips, interactive sessions, applied learning assignments, lively group chats, dedicated course tutors and 24/7 access and support. And for those interested in pursuing Italian Studies, our online sections mirror our in-residence courses by offering:

  • All the courses are a blend of both asynchronous and synchronous online learning
  • Six different levels of Italian language courses (fully taught in Italian)
  • Course entrance competency tests (when needed)
  • Two courses of Italian literature (fully taught in Italian)
  • Live lessons
  • A focus on communication skills
  • A spotlight on Italian cultural topics

“Our Sant’Anna eLearning team has developed a mirror program of rigorous, high-quality, and relevant academic coursework to be delivered directly to students over the Jacksonville University online learning platform.  All courses are 3-credit hours each and may be transferable to students’ home institution through JU. These courses complement current US home university offerings and are unique to our program and environment,” said Dr. Marco Marino, Sant’Anna Academic Director.
