Between Rome and the majestic hills of the region of Abruzzo, students interested in comparative cultures, photography or international studies will experience Italy through food, wine and the people they will meet.

FNAR 113 Drawing I / ITAL 101 Italian I (Perugia)

This fusion experience takes students' language and fine arts course requirements and turns them into an unforgettable summer! These courses are perfect for students wishing to gain a strong foundation in the basics of the melodic Italian language, all while immersing themselves in the country's deeply-rooted artistic tradition.
