A Message to our Students.


Italy’s contributions and culture are much more than a legacy of the timeless masterpieces. The Italian Studies Program incorporates the creative spirit born from a centuries-old tradition with the driving force behind Italy’s economy to offer language acquisition enhanced by the study of literature, film, and culture.

As Italian students, you have engaged with one of the most iconic cultures in the Western world.
