Students have available courses in French and Italian language, literature and culture.
Language courses make use of CU's ALTEC language lab to provide maximum flexibility in language learning. Courses cover spoken and written language, composition and conversation.
Culture courses focus on cinema, theatre, and media.
Literature courses cover topics ranging from the Middle Ages to the twenty-first-century novel. We also offer education abroad programs in a number of Italian and French-speaking locations.
Students can choose either a minor or a major in French or Italian. The department also offers a new joint Certificate Program with Engineering, in both French and Italian.
