Umbra Institute, Summer

Umbra ExcursionIf you have a desire to explore Italy and Italian culture, you'll appreciate a summer at the Umbra Institute or Universitá per Stranieri di Perugia.

The Umbra Institute is located right in the heart of Perugia, in a splendid structure that was formerly a palace for Italian nobility, Palazzo Oddi. The palace maintains its distinct Renaissance character, while offering extensive modern facilities including a library, computer lab, classrooms, and student lounge.

This six-week program at the Umbra Institute offers a wide variety of courses – everything from art history and performing arts, to literature and political science. Each course awards three semester hours of credit. You can opt to take one or two courses and can expect to earn between 3 and 6 credits. Your studies will really come to life through various field excursions to the main cities and cultural centers in Umbria, Tuscany and the surrounding area. All summer courses are taught in English.
