The Umbra Institute General Studies program in Perugia requires a minimum of one Italian language course based on your proficiency.

Within General studies, students are able to choose from liberal arts electives taught in English in a variety of disciplines, including food studies, honors independent research and community engagement placements.
Please see the Umbra Institute to determine the course availability for your period of study.
The majority of courses will require you to use a textbook or a “reader,” which is a packet of information compiled by the professor. Textbooks will be available for purchase at the Umbra Institute or local bookstores; readers will be supplied the first day of class and billed to you as part of your course lab fees.
Your course may require field trips and other activities that have additional fees associated not included in your program fee. Please be sure to consult the Umbra Institute course pages to learn if your courses have associated lab fees.
