You will take eight credits total in Italian Language and Culture at the Umbra Institute. Courses are conducted in Italian but cater to all levels of proficiency.
- Please review your courses with your academic or study abroad advisor to ensure they will transfer back to your home school and that you are following your home school’s policies.
- Please be flexible – we can’t guarantee specific courses. If your participation in the program depends on a particular course, be sure to make a note on your online course form.
- Italian Language: It is not possible to combine the Intensive language (8) credit course with any other course at Umbra for the Summer Program.
- Enrollment in courses is determined by a placement test taken at the beginning of the program during orientation.
Choosing Your Courses
You will find summer courses listed online at the Umbra Institute.
Official course registration will take place upon arrival. The online course form you submit to Arcadia prior to acceptance is not set in stone. If your enrollment is conditional upon entry into a specific course or courses, it is very important that you indicate these requirements at the bottom of the online course form on your Arcadia Passport.
Grades will be reported exactly as they appear on the Umbra Institute transcript.
