The Umbra Institute invites students interested in the many disciplines of Psychology Studies to take their education beyond the classroom through a semester abroad in Perugia, Italy, taught in English, through the General Studies Program.
Why study psychology in Italy?
Students who study psychology abroad learn a multicultural approach to psychology. At Umbra, this is developed through the study of multicultural motivation and management structures, human development through a cultural lens, and research methods; all of which inspire students to address psychology from previously unexplored viewpoints and gain a culturally diverse perspective through experience in a foreign culture and language.
What classes are available?
Each class is designed to get students involved in the community, helping them gain experience with field research methods in a multicultural environment. Students can also ask us about our Independent Research options!
In addition, ambitious students seeking to regularly interact with their host community are welcome to apply for Umbra’s unique Seminar & Practicum courses:
