Undergraduate Programs - Italian

In the global context of the 21st century, a degree in Italian offers students a distinct set of advantages, both personal and professional. We examine Italy as the geographic, cultural, and economic heart of Europe; a center of Western civilization from Roman times to the present day. The mastery of spoken and written Italian is developed through the study of an evolving artistic tradition: Medieval literature and culture, Renaissance philosophy, modern Italian poetry and prose, cinema and new media. Such textual landscapes deliver global perspectives that launch students into diverse fields, from education to diplomacy, travel journalism to museum curating, interpreting and translation to international trade and finance.
