U. New Mexico-Albuquerque Summer Program in Italy
Writing Italian Food — Summer 2016
Building on the success of last two years’ courses in Italy, University of New Mexico Prof. Teresa Cutler-Broyles will be teaching a course in Italy again, a course called “Writing Italian Food.” The class will be taught in English, so no Italian language proficiency is required. The classes are held in Perugia, in central Italy, at the Umbra Institute. Class is twice a week with several field trips to nearby cities, with no classes on Friday. The Summer Session runs from the last week in May to the end of June.
A Big University Town in a Small Italian City. UNM students will take advantage of the Umbra Institute’s incredible location in Perugia, Italy, to complete courses that count towards their majors, all while studying abroad and living in the real Italy. While the courses will be engaging, students will also have ample time on the weekend to travel elsewhere in Europe.Students can either take just this class or can choose another course from the elective courses offered at Umbra. See a list of standard summer courses here: Summer course offerings.
Student Life. Each summer the Umbra Institute hosts between 80 and 100 American and Italian college students from colleges and universities across the U.S. and in Perugia. Housing is provided for all students in shared apartments within a 5-minute walk of the Institute. Apartments are furnished with full kitchens and have WiFi access. Check out some of the student activities offered at Umbra.

“This program is an amazing experience! It will be 100 times more than what you expect. The friends and amazing people you will meet lasts a lifetime. I loved that I was able to actually see and experience the real subject I was studying and reading about. I love being able to personally experience the culture around me; I find it inspiring.”

UNM at Umbra Summer ’15
“Perugia is one of those places that is so authentic that it seems like it cannot be real. From the cobblestone streets to the accordion players on every corner, to the delicious pizzerias and laid-back Italians conversing everywhere, it is a place I will never forget – and my first taste of real, true, authentic Italy. Perugia was a place that made my summer absolutely magical.”

UNM at Umbra Summer ’15
“Studying abroad at the Umbra Institute was one of the best things I’ve ever done. This program gave me a chance to look past your typical tourist view and truly immerse myself in Italian culture. The course I took on Italian food was extremely insightful and it gave me an even higher regard for the region’s cuisine. Outside of class, I had the opportunity to meet some of the most incredible people, sample some of the world’s best food, and visit fabulously beautiful sites where gladiators, renaissance men, popes, and artists once roamed. If you’re looking into this program, go, go, GO! You will not regret it!”
