Italian Studies Resources


Il Circolino is an integral part of the Major and Minor in Italian Studies programs. Students are expected to attend specific sessions during the week as part of their Italian courses. Here students also have an informal meeting place to further develop their language skills and to learn about the culture and activities of local and international Italian groups. Instructors and monitors are available in Il Circolino for approximately 3-4 hours per day. Language assistants are hired to help support the increasing number of students who study Italian.

Italian Language Week. In the fall the department will arrange several cultural activities to celebrate everything Italian on the occasion of the “Week of the Italian Language in the World”, organized by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs every year.
