Academic Programs in Italian Studies

[image]

The University of Pennsylvania, strong in its interdisciplinary and international dimensions, supports a flourishing Italian Studies Program. The Program's distinctive configuration reflects our setting on the Penn campus and in the heart of Philadelphia. Students can choose a traditional concentration in language and literature or shape more individualized curriculums that connect to sister programs.

The Center for Italian Studies

As a Research Center of the School of Arts & Sciences of the University of Pennsylvania, the CIS supports faculty and students in developing their research and pedagogy concerning Italian history, language, culture, economy, and society; it also promotes the circulation in Philadelphia, the United States and abroad, of the research on Italian topics developed at Penn; finally, the Center facilitates the communications between Penn and the Italian community in Philadelphia, the institutions representing the Italian Republic in the United States, and the centers and cultural organizations that promote Italian-related issues in the US.
