Broaden your understanding and appreciation of Italian culture. Italian influences are evident in everyday life in the United States, especially in fashion, food and architecture.
Italian is the native language of more than 58 million people, worldwide.
Knowledge of a second language is increasingly important as the business industry trends on going global. Italy is the world's fifth largest industrial producer of goods, making Italian speakers a valuable asset to many large, global companies.
Our courses: -First Year Italian (IT 111, IT 112, IT 113); -Second Year Italian (IT 211, IT 212, IT 213); -Women in Italian Cinema (IT 261). NOTE: All of our Italian courses are now taught exclusively online through Ecampus.
