Enroll in one of the two academic pathways to make the most of your summer in Italy. General Studies students choose two courses for six credits in a variety of subjects per session, including Italian Language and Culture. Intensive Italian students select a course track based on Italian language level. You may choose to participate in either individual session of the program or both sessions.
Refer to the ISI Perugia - The Umbra Institute website for your chosen period of study for course descriptions and syllabi (where available):
Official course registration will take place upon arrival. The online course form you submit prior to acceptance is not set in stone.
You are only required to take one course per session for General Studies. Taking additional courses is optional and will result in increased tuition cost.
Please be sure to consult your program advisor to learn if your courses have associated lab fees.
