The Siena School for Liberal Arts, located in Tuscany, Italy, offers unique study abroad programs for university students and adult professionals. Since 2005, the Deaf Studies Department has ambitiously worked with Italian and American Deaf and signing communities in providing exciting opportunities for students and professionals alike. Programs allow American Sign Language (ASL) users access to transnational Deaf and signing communities through learning Italian Sign Language (LIS) and the history of Italian Deaf culture. 

Students may register for a study abroad program through the Consortium Programs Site,, or directly from the Siena School, depending on whether you are interested in earning resident credit or transfer credit. Please be sure to consult with your academic advisor to determine which of these options will benefit you most.
