A major in Italian Studies promotes the cross-discipline exploration of a variety of areas relating to Italian and Italian American culture: language, literature, theatre, cinema, art and architecture, music, history, social and immigration history, politics and political theory.

The University is committed to international study, and students are encouraged to take advantage of the numerous opportunities to study abroad that are available to them. Students can combine a major in Italian Studies with a second major in a field such as political science, history, anthropology, history of art and architecture, music, English, business, linguistics or another foreign language
