About

The Italian program at the University of Tennessee Knoxville provides students with an overall view of Italian culture, economy, history, and society. Courses on conversation, composition, and culture, as well as on Dante, Machiavelli, Italian Opera, women in literature, Italian cinema, etc. expose students to Italy's cultural treasures and current affairs.

Overview

Italian studies are tailored for students interested in art, literature, music, politics, and Italian business. The major is particularly appealing to students who love to learn and experience other cultures, speak other languages, travel, and wish to work for American companies doing business in or with Italy.

Career options:

Italian majors from University of Tennessee Knoxville, especially those with a concentration in Language and World Business, have a great opportunity to find a job with a U.S. or an Italian company either stateside or in Italy. Students who take advantage of our study abroad programs increase their career opportunities, since most companies prefer employees with the resourcefulness normally associated with life abroad.

Italian minors benefit from more professional opportunities.
