Verona is a city and provincial capital in Veneto, Northern Italy. The ancient town and the center of the modern city are in a loop of the Adige River near Lake Garda. Because of this position, the areas saw regular floodings until 1956, when the Mori-Torbole tunnel was constructed. 
The objective of this program is to introduce students to the study of global issues by exposing them to diverse topics in an international setting in which their perspectives may be broadened. To accomplish this goal, courses are offered in a number of disciplines. Subjects of study include globalization, the international economy, legislative systems, conflict, and socio-cultural, economic, and political development.
In 2016, GLOBIS will be offering Spring and Summer study abroad programs in the northern Italian city of Verona.  Information regarding the Summer Study Abroad Program is also available.
