Choosing Your Courses

You should have a minimum of four semesters of Italian Language prior to attending this program, but ideally, have surpassed the Italian language sequence at your home university and be able to take electives in special topics taught entirely in Italian.

You will take an intensive Italian course for the first six weeks prior to starting your two other elective courses and receive support and tutoring each week from Umbra Institute faculty.

Enrollment Process

You will take a placement test during your orientation so that you are placed at the appropriate courses for your Italian proficiency level.

Official course registration will take place upon arrival. The online course form you submit to Arcadia prior to acceptance is not set in stone.

Grade Scale

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