Looking to explore the cultural capital of Italy? If you’re interested in studying abroad, consider Marymount Manhattan’s new direct program with The Umbra Institute in Perugia.
Less than a hundred miles south east of Florence, the Umbra Institute offers an unmatched study abroad experience for American college students in the stunning city of Perugia. Our students receive a challenging and rewarding academic program while fully immersing them in the Italian culture. For the last several summers, our faculty liaison Dr. Peter Naccarato has brought dozens of MMC students to Perugia for a 5-week summer program. As of Fall 2015, students can now choose to study at the Umbra Institute for the fall or spring semester, or even the full academic year.
