First Contact

Your first contact is the person who can help you answer questions such as "Should I major in Italian?" or "How will minoring in French enhance my career opportunities?" A meeting with your first contact will help you answer those questions, as well as plan your program, a study abroad experience, and potential courses.

If you're thinking about a minor or major in French, reach out to Jennifer Willging.

If you're thinking about a minor in Italian, or a major in Italian, Italian Studies, or Romance Studies, reach out to Janice Aski.
