Umbra Institute Summer Courses

For the summer General Studies program, you may enroll in either one course for three credits or two courses for six credits in Italian Language and Culture. There is no need for prior experience in Italian to enroll. All courses are taught in English and you don't need to speak Italian to enroll. 

    • Make sure your credits transfer back for credit with your home school-- this is your responsibility.
    • Please be flexible about courses-- we can’t guarantee placement in specific courses.
    • Please review your course choices with your academic or study abroad advisor, and submit the online course registration form to The College of Global Studies at Arcadia University.
