Program in Italian Studies

Introduction to Italian Studies

Italian Studies is an interdisciplinary program in the language, literature, history, music, theatre and art of Italy. Italian Studies coordinates the resources of the Departments of History, Literature, Music, Theatre and Dance, and Visual Arts, and offers students the opportunity to design a major, leading to a B.A., around the course offerings of these five departments.

Students in Italian Studies are encouraged to participate in the University of California Education Abroad Program (EAP), which is affiliated with Universities in the cities of Siena, Padova, Milan, Rome and Bologna; this provides the possibility of a junior year abroad, including both language courses and courses dealing with various aspects of Italian studies. EAP credits may be transferred back to UCSD to coordinate with on-campus offerings.
