International Programs Teaching Appointment in Florence

Each summer, the Department of Art History offers up to two appointments for doctoral students to teach in Italy on the FSU International Programs Florence campus. Appointees spend class time with students on site in Florence’s many museums, galleries, monuments, and churches, and join the entire program on excursions to other cities in Italy. The program offers a unique opportunity for doctoral students to further their teaching experience as well as their own research abroad before or after the teaching appointment.


Each doctoral student who receives a Florence Teaching Appointment is responsible for teaching a single section of ARH 2000 – Art, Architecture, and Artistic Vision during one of two six-week summer sessions (for 2020, the dates are May 11–June 18 or June 25–July 30). Alternatively, one doctoral student may be appointed for both sessions (May 11–July 30). Round-trip airfare and  housing are provided, as well as a $2000 stipend per session.

How to Apply

For summer 2020, current doctoral students in good standing should express their interest in this position to the Academic Program Specialist, Juan Barceló-González, in the form of a CV and a letter that details teaching qualifications, prior travel experience, how the opportunity will help advance their research, summer availability, and summer session preference.

Application materials for the summer 2020 sessions must be submitted no later than September 15, 2019.
