A student studying abroad with Umbra Institute: Perugia - The Food and Sustainability Studies Program
When I was about to depart for Perugia, I still had it in my head that Italy was this magical place filled with old culture and ancient practices. While that can be true, it is also a modern country that is still evolving. It has its own issues just like any other country in the world. I think that was the most important lesson.... - Trinity University View Entire Review
My time abroad was a tremendous experience on so many levels, from enhancing my Italian language skills to learning about the global food system. It was worthwhile and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. - Hamilton College View Entire Review

I gained so much knowledge inside and outside of the classroom. I also learned that I would like to pursue future studies and a career in Italian food and wine. - The College of Wooster View Entire Review
I learned so many things about myself, while also learning to exist in a place that I am not used to. It was incredible, I wish I could rewind to August 2016 and do it again. - University of Denver View Entire Review

About

The Food and Sustainability Studies Program (FSSP) at the Umbra Institute is a curricular concentration that applies an interdisciplinary approach to the study of food and sustainability – history, sociology, cultural studies, anthropology, business, politics, science, agriculture, and sustainability – to discover how the individual, the community, and society relate to food in Italy, America, and elsewhere. The program is composed of three courses in food studies including two core courses and a choice of one of the following courses: Business of Wine or Anthropology of Food. In addition to the three courses, the program includes an Italian language course and an optional elective course for a total of 14-18 credits.
