Overview

  • Seat of the Roman Empire and birthplace of the Renaissance, few countries have had as much impact on western civilization as Italy. Arcadia’s Majors Abroad Program (MAP) leads students to a Bachelor of Arts in Italian Studies. The Italian Studies major centers its core of courses in language skills, culture, literature, cinema, and the arts. The most significant aspect of this major is the requirement for students to spend at least one year in Italy and complete their major courses in cities such as Florence, Rome or Perugia.
  • Careers in art, food, fashion, work within museums, international business and education, diplomacy and government relations, and positions within communications, and travel and hospitality industries are among the countless ways Italian Studies graduates have crafted livelihoods and lifestyles using their skills and appreciation of Italy, its people and its historic, global influence on mankind.
