U. New Mexico-Albuquerque Summer Program in Italy
Writing Italian Food — Summer 2018
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. High Point students will take advantage of the Umbra Institute’s beautiful location in historic 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 because no classes are held on Fridays. Thus, students have a three-day weekend.. Students can either 1) take just this class, or 2) take another course from the elective courses (all in English) offered at Umbra. See a list of standard summer courses here: Summer 2018 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 helped me look past your typical tourist view and immerse myself in Italian culture. The course on Italian food was extremely insightful and gave me an even higher regard for the region’s cuisine. I met some of the most incredible people, sampled some of the world’s best food, and visited fabulously beautiful sites. GO! You will not regret it!”
