Students who are lovers of ancient Rome or Renaissance Florence, of soccer, pasta or Petrarch, will find something for them in the Italian program. Our undergraduate curriculum enables our students to achieve a high level of proficiency in Italian language, and gives them extensive preparation in Italian literature and culture, as well as opportunities for travel and study abroad.
Our semester and year-long study abroad program in Padua enables students to immerse themselves in Italian culture, thereby deepening their understanding of it. The study of Italian will prepare students for a career in academia, international business, international medicine, international law, international relations or diplomacy, as well as in the fine arts and teaching.
We offer intellectually dynamic and personally rewarding social environment, enhanced by Tavola Italiania, and our ongoing series of lectures, films, and artistic performances. Benvenuti a tutti!
