Italy - The Umbra Institute

The Umbra Institute - Summer Programs



                                Perugia, Italy

The Umbra Institute is located in Perugia, often referred to as the big university town in a small Italian city. The Institute offers two innovative academic programs that give students different curricular options during the summer. The General Studies Program is based on a traditional liberal arts curriculum and allows students to take a wide variety of courses taught in English, as well as an optional Italian language course. Study fields include art history, history, sociology, business, film studies, food studies, political sciences, and studio art.

Students can also choose the Intensive Italian Through Culture Program, where classroom work is coupled with a rich variety of co-curricular cultural activities. Cinema nights, language-exchange sessions, dinners, museum visits, and local tours will complement the in-class learning. With this program, which is conducted entirely in Italian, you'll learn and practice as much Italian as possible during the summer. Thanks to the small dimension of the city, the daily interaction with Italian students and to the effective learning of the Italian language, Umbra helps students get to know the real Italy--and Italians.
