Welcome to Italian & European Studies!

Students majoring in Italian develop language skills in their social and cultural contexts. The combination of linguistic and cultural competency is excellent preparation for a variety of professional careers in business, government, the humanities, and science. Double (second) majors are encouraged and supported. Numerous opportunities are available, including programs of study abroad, work study, interdisciplinary programs, and Fulbright. We offer two tracks for the Italian major: Italian Studies and Italian and European Studies.

Students should email the Director of the Language Program, Professor Luciana Fellin when they declare their major to set up their first advising meetings and to discuss any questions they may have.
