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.

  • 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.

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.

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.
