U. New Mexico-Albuquerque Summer Program in Italy
Writing Italian Food — Summer 2019
University of New Mexico Prof. Teresa Cutler-Broyles will be teaching her exciting course, “Writing Italian Food“, for the sixth consecutive year in Perugia, Italy. The class will be taught in English, so no Italian language proficiency is required. Classes are held twice a week at the Umbra Institute, with several field trips to nearby restaurants, wineries, and towns. The Summer Session runs from the last week in May to the end of June. Come join us!
A Big University Town in a Small Italian City. UNM 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. When not in class, students have the opportunity to travel, through Italy and to other cities in Europe, during their three-day weekends. 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 2019 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!”
