Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures

Italian Faculty


The Italian minor offers a wide array of courses on Italian language, literature and culture. You can hone your language skills through courses focusing on business Italian, Italian conversion and cinema, and Italian-American culture. In addition to language courses, we also offer cultural classes in English, like our Italian-American culture course. These courses are taught in English and allow students with no Italian language skills to explore the culture.
