Italian Undergraduate Programs

Italian Studies has as its mission to maintain the traditions and study of the great classics as well as to provide a window on an increasingly complex and diverse contemporary Italian culture. It promotes the study of the Italian language through an excellent and rigorous language training program. It offers courses in Italian literature, both in Italian and in English, as well as in Italian film. The department periodically invites scholars specializing in contemporary politics, the Italian immigrant experience and social change, enabling students to gain both a broader and more critical understanding of various aspects of Italian culture, through contact with specialists in these areas.

As a result of recent developments in the measures to contain the Covid-19 pandemic, it has unfortunately become necessary to cancel the McGill @ La Sapienza Summer School.  We are confident that the Summer School will return in the Summer of 2023.
