The program in Modern Languages requires the study of three languages including Italian and/or Spanish. In Italian Studies, we offer courses on language, literature, and culture, including Italian food, music, and the Italian immigrant experience. Students have the opportunity to study abroad at the Università per Stranieri di Siena (in Siena, Italy) or the Università di Udine (in Friuli, Italy).
In Hispanic Studies, we offer courses on the language as well as the rich Hispanic culture in Spain and the Americas. Students can apply to study at the Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha, in Ciudad Real, Spain.
The Department also offers introductory courses in Chinese and Arabic. Any BA student studying several languages may obtain the Certificate of Basic Multilingual Competence.
