Springfield Students Study Abroad in Italy
Experience the Real Italy! For five weeks every May and June, a select group of Springfield students take advantage of the Umbra Institute’s incredible location in Perugia, Italy to take a course offered by Springfield professors, all while studying abroad and living in the Italy. Students also have ample time on the weekends to travel elsewhere in Italy and Europe. Are you ready to experience “la dolce vita” in Perugia and Italy for yourself?
Note that all courses are in English, so no Italian language proficiency is required. Courses at Umbra meet twice a week, with no classes on Friday. Students may choose to only take only the Springfield course (below) or a combination of one Springfield course and one Umbra course. See a list of standard summer courses here.
Dates. The 2019 Summer Session will run from May 24 till June 29.
Live like an Italian: Learn to appreciate the Italian lifestyle. Umbra provides students with shared apartments within a 5-minute walk of the Institute, allowing for innumerable opportunities to enjoy mid-day siestas, eat a panino on the fountain steps, and walk the city center like a native. Apartments are furnished with full kitchens so that you can try to duplicate your favorite new Italian dish. WiFi is provided both within the Institute and in each student apartment
Applications are available through Prof. Nazzaro and will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis until March 1. Participation requirements are listed on applications. A $500 non-refundable deposit is due on or before March 1, 2019.
