Summer Study in Sustainability and Food Systems in Italy
Experience the Real Italy: UVM Professor Mark Usher (Department of Classics and the Environmental Program) will be offering a version of his popular UVM course “Sustainability: A Cultural History” this summer at the Umbra Institute in Perugia, Italy. Next summer, you can take advantage of the Umbra Institute’s beautiful location as you study the science and culture of food. Courses are designed to use Perugia as a classroom and to give students ample time to travel elsewhere in Italy and Europe.
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.
