Italian Education, Bachelor

  • Application Deadline
  • 48 months
University rank #491 (QS) , DE,
Share your passion for Italian culture and the language by becoming a teacher. Our own dedicated professors will help you attain proficiency in Italian and in classroom instruction. Supervising cooperative teachers will enrich your learning experience by sharing years of classroom wisdom and activities. 


Communicative Language Teaching in campus classrooms develops our candidates’ proficiency early on. Real-world cultural experiences and language study on-site in three- and five-week intersession courses and in full-semester programs build cultural proficiency. Complementary minors are available (Linguistics, Urban Education, Women’s Studies, Comparative Literature, European Studies and Political Science to name a few) and are popular add-ons to the major. A series of field experiences prepares students for successful student teaching. And one-on-one mentoring of student teachers by a UD Field Instructor and classroom clinical educator ensure success in teaching.
