Undergraduate Studies

The Department of French and Italian offers five undergraduate majors, two minors, and a combined BA/MA program. Students gain proficiency in a second language, discover the appreciation of other cultures, and learn to think critically. Our goal is to develop students’ intercultural competency and guide them to understand the skills that they develop so that they can express to future employers what they have to offer as multilingual, culturally and interculturally competent job candidates. Students work towards the degrees with classes, one-on-one interaction with faculty, study abroad experiences, conversation groups and clubs, and scholarly events.
