The Italian Studies (Minor) at Dalhousie University has become increasingly popular. All of our instructors are native Italian speakers and we also offer several advanced language courses and courses that focus on Italian literature and culture.


Why study Italian at DAL?

The Italian language provides you with access to an important world culture. While modern Italy began emerging into its present-day form in the 19th century, the civilizations that preceded it exerted a strong influence on Western culture. Today, it is one of the world's wealthiest democratic nations, and a leader in a variety of fields, including film, design, cuisine, and intellectual life.

The Italian Studies (Minor) program at Dalhousie University is the only one of its kind in Atlantic Canada, and can provide a unique addition to your undergraduate degree.

We offer a range of courses in Italian language and culture at the undergraduate level, which can contribute to your Honours, Double Major or Minor.

The program focuses on a range of topics from national cinema to cuisine, as well as intense language classes, to provide the student with an in-depth knowledge of Italian history and culture. We are also fortunate to have a very active student society in Amici Miei, who organize tutoring and language clubs outside of class hours.
