Studying Italian at DU will foster your ability to master more than one language and culture, an asset as a global citizen. In the Italian concentration, you’ll study the Italian language and its manifestations in history as well as cultural studies from the past to the present. Our faculty work closely with students to build an understanding of the relationship between language and culture through small, interactive classes and independent study programs.

Any language study requires immersion, and we offer study abroad options that support a variety of student interests. You can study language in Perugia, learn about business in Milan and Turin, or enhance your understanding of Italian art in Florence. There are multiple ways to tie your studies into key out-of-classroom experiences, such as visiting performers, films, internships and extracurricular activities right on campus. You’ll finish the Italian degree with the necessary linguistic and cultural background to pursue prestigious fellowships or attend graduate school in Italian Studies. You’ll also gain a foundation of experience to achieve professional goals in the world of business, international relations and education.
