Undergraduate Studies:

The objective of the Italian Studies major consists of an intensive study of Italian language, along with the study of the culture that has shaped Italian society and its interaction with American society through the study of literature, culture and film studies.

Italian Studies at Stony Brook is a versatile program that allows the student to concentrate on the study of Italian language, culture, and literature. Students may choose an individualized course of study to fit their needs. A student interested in teaching Italian at the secondary school level should concentrate on courses taught in the Italian Language, while a student interested in other careers should choose courses in culture, film studies, and Italian American social issues.
