About

The Italian language is spoken by more than 70 million people residing all over the world. Students in the Italian program from The Ohio State University enjoy a sense of community among their cohort and their instructors, who are readily available for consultation. 

Overview

In this hemisphere there are more than 10 million descendants of immigrants from Italy living in countries from Canada to Argentina, with the United States second only to Italy itself in number of Italian-speaking residents. In addition to studying the grammatical aspects of Italian, students learn about the culture, history, cinema and literature of Italy, a country that for over two thousand years has been at the center of the artistic and cultural history of the western world.

Program objectives

Those who complete the Italian program from The Ohio State University will have a sound linguistic foundation in Italian, a firm understanding of Italian culture and the resources necessary to interact as responsible, productive global citizens.

Possible careers

Italian is applicable in a variety of settings in the United States and abroad. Mastery of Italian allows students to consider careers in such fields as education, government, international trade (in fashions, machinery, wine and foodstuffs, for example), banking, print or electronic media, scientific and medical research, or tourism. Many employers are eager to hire graduates who are fluent in Italian because their businesses involve Italian speakers.

Careers in which Italian is the primary emphasis include teaching Italian at all levels, interpreting and translating for government and for private and public organizations, and a variety of positions in the travel and tourism industry at home or abroad such as flight attendant, travel agent or tour guide.

Careers in which proficiency in Italian is a good secondary tool include banking and finance, business, sales, export purchasing, foreign market analysis, journalism, foreign correspondence, science and research, library science, hotel management, publishing, radio broadcasting, and teaching English in Italy to employees in corporations abroad.

Ohio State graduates with Italian degrees have chosen jobs such as manager for World Trade Group, bilingual secretary for Citified Mortgage, director/organizer of study abroad programs, publicist for Salls & Bonda Inc. and community health organizer for the Peace Corps.

Students can explore career options by utilizing Career Connection as well as the Arts and Sciences Career Services Office. Career Connection focuses on helping students establish a career direction, while the Arts and Sciences Career Services Office assists students with finding internships—experiences that are essential to testing out the suitability of career fields they are considering.
