The Italian Studies program is part of the Department of European Studies in the College of Arts and Letters at SDSU. The program currently offers coursework leading to a minor in Italian. It emphasizes language, culture, literature and film. Minors acquire a broad background in contemporary Italy and its origins from historical, social, linguistic, literary, and cultural points of view. In addition, both the majors in European Studies and International Business include a language and culture concentration with emphasis in Italian.
