We offer students in humanistic departments a chance to deepen their knowledge, in their own discipline, of Italian civilization; and fosters interdisciplinary study among students and faculty members who have an interest in ancient, early modern, and modern Italian studies and culture.

The Program sponsors a lecture series, graduate student symposia, fellowships for summer research in Italian archives, libraries, and museums, and a Graduate Certificate in Italian Studies.

The Program in Italian Studies works in close collaboration with the Department of French and Italian but is a separate entity operated under the auspices of the Humanities Council.
