BU’s Padua programs take place in a lively town that’s home to one of the oldest universities in the world. The Padua Mediterranean Diet: Food, Culture & Health program will immerse students in the food, agriculture, culture, cuisine, and lifestyle of the Mediterranean region while studying the evidence-based research on the Mediterranean diet and health outcomes. Students will participate in hands-on activities, learn from expert guest lecturers, and take field trips to vineyards, farms, and marketplaces. The course will be taught in English at the BU Padua Academic Center.
