In a large research university like Rutgers University, students in the Italian program benefit from a close-knit liberal arts college atmosphere – in smaller, seminar-style courses, they receive training directly from our award-winning research faculty.


Why Italian?

Most students in our program begin with little to no Italian, and complete their degree able to understand, discuss, and write analytically about novels, poetry, film, and pressing issues of international significance in their original language.

Our undergraduate program prepares students for a globalized world by providing them cultural immersion and fluency in a language other than English, and solid training in the humanities through a focus on textual analysis, critical thinking and writing, and intercultural interpretation.


The Italian program of Rutgers University opens the door to many professional graduate schools, including law schools and schools of international affairs or diplomacy, as well as to careers in education, international business (finance, import/export, wine, food, fashion), journalism, and public relations.
