Umbra Institute Summer Courses

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 form to The College of Global Studies at Arcadia University.

Choosing Your Courses

Refer to the Umbra website for your chosen period of study:

Enrollment Process

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.

Miscellaneous and Fees

You are only required to take one 3 credit course. Taking additional courses is optional and will result in increased tuition cost.

Please be sure to consult your program manager to learn if your courses have associated lab fees.

Grade Scale

Grades will be reported exactly as they appear on the Umbra Institute transcript.
