Italy is the cradle of Humanism. The country has always played a key role in the political, religious and cultural history of Europe. It has more places featured on UNESCO's World Heritage List than any other country in the world, and it has been a major contender in the field of art and culture for several centuries.
Our Italian studies provide a variety of different approaches as well as the opportunity to engage more deeply in your field of interest. You can gain proficiency in the Italian language and acquire a thorough knowledge of Italian cultural history by studying ancient and modern literature. Italian can be relevant for work in both the public and private sectors where our internationalized society places heavy demands on having language and cultural skills.
