Italian language and culture are taught in a full-immersion, communicative classroom, where students can work toward gaining proficiency in reading, writing, speaking, and listening over as much as four semesters of study. In the fourth semester, students will have a focused introduction to Italian poetry, theater, or prose alongside a review of advanced grammar topics. Students may satisfy the college's general education requirement in a second language, or in the Learning Objective tagged as “comprehending cross-culturally,” with Italian 301/ 302/ 303. Students may also pursue an interdisciplinary minor in Italian Studies.
