The Italian Studies program offers a major and a minor in Italian Studies. In addition to focusing on developing students’ fluency in Italian, students gain a broad understanding of Italy’s culture and its intellectual and artistic past. It is our goal to teach our students the linguistic skills and cultural knowledge necessary to successfully function in an Italian environment. Our students will also become familiar with Italy’s history, its artifacts, and intellectual contributions of the past and present to understand Italy’s unique culture.
