Section 1

Undergraduate Program in Italian

At the undergraduate level, Italian at UIUC offers both a major and a minor with courses in language, literature, film, linguistics, and cultural studies. Our courses beyond Italian language cover Italy's literary and cultural heritage from Dante to contemporary Italian film. Many courses are taught in Italian, but we regularly offer courses in English, such as Italian cinema and Dante. For most of our majors, Study Abroad is an integral part of their experience. UIUC is affiliated with programs in Verona and Bologna, as well as a popular summer program in Catania, Sicily, but the Study Abroad office has programs throughout Italy. Our majors—many of whom are double majors—find that their work in Italian helps prepare them for careers in business, law, science, medicine, international relations and education, among others. If you're interested in a major in Italian, you should contact the Undergraduate Advisor in order to plan your studies.
