Italian Language Tables

The Italian language table is in Ross dining hall.  Language tables are a great opportunity to increase language skills over a delicious lunch.  Students of all skill levels will benefit greatly from sharing a meal and conversing with the department faculty and other Italian speakers in this restaurant-style environment.


Italian Department Learning Goals for the Major

Upon completion of an Italian major, students will possess advanced linguistic proficiency in Italian in speaking, comprehension, reading, and writing. During their Senior year, students will write a research project in Italian, in which they will show their ability to analyze critically literary texts, art works, and social issues in Italian, by using the appropriate vocabulary.
