Graduate Studies in Italian

Pursue a graduate degree at Middlebury and you will find yourself working side by side with some of the most focused, directed students of the Italian language. But that's only part of the picture. Our instructors, drawn from among the most prominent in their fields, provide the skill and guidance you need to chart an independent course that meets your learning and career goals.

Whether you choose to earn your degree in our summer program or by studying abroad in Florence, you will experience a unique environment that immerses you not only in the Italian language but in both the historical and contemporary Italian culture. The key to it all is the Language Pledge—an agreement you make to communicate only in Italian for the duration of the program. Talk to a graduate of our MA in Italian program, and chances are you will hear them describe a remarkable period of language acquisition and academic achievement that has dramatically broadened their perspective and prepared them to realize their future career goals.
