Studies in Italian


"Fatti non foste per viver come bruti ma per seguir virtute e canoscenza." (You were not created to live like savages, but to follow virtue and knowledge.)Dante Alighieri

The Department of Romance and Classical Studies offers a minor in Italian.

Italian has been taught at the university since 1967. The BGSU Italian faculty welcomes students interested in culinary arts, fashion, film, language, literature, and music to join us. Exposure to Italian culture, language, and history can enrich students' lives and prepare them for the future.
