The Italian Studies department at Bryn Mawr emphasizes a holistic approach to the study of Italian culture. From language and literature to history and culture, we offer an interdisciplinary course of study that brings together interests in the works of the great Italian authors. The Italian and Italian Studies program is offered at Bryn Mawr College.


Several of our students opt for a double major by combining Italian with work in other fields such as music, International Studies, Comparative Literature, History of Art, Cities, Classics, Anthropology, and Film Studies. After fulfilling basic units of language instruction, students choose from a variety of interesting courses (offered in English and Italian) on the literature, art, culture, history, and cinema of Italy.

Why Study Italian at Bryn Mawr College ?

The Italian and Italian Studies department welcomes all students from the Tri-Co system interested in Italian culture as viewed from a variety of critical perspectives and cross-cultural reflections, including but not limited to cultural studies, women’s studies and feminist criticism, post-colonial theory, and film theory. The sound reputation of the Italian and Italian Studies program offered at Bryn Mawr College that our department enjoys may be measured by the fact that all the students who have majored in Italian and have gone on to do graduate work in Italian have been accepted by the schools of their choice including Harvard, Berkeley, Rutgers, Johns Hopkins—often with financial assistance.
