When you study in the Italian Studies program of Gettysburg College, you learn more than a second language. You also develop an understanding of language systems, opening the door to a country rich in art, music, literature, history, and cinematography.


By removing yourself from the comfort of your habitual forms of self-expression, foreign language study—whether contemporary or ancient—teaches you to translate abstract ideas into concrete form in new ways. 

You come to learn that language involves not only vocabulary in the crafting of expression but also syntax and idiom, and that cultural idiosyncrasies permeate any language, including your own.
