About the Program
The Program in Italian Studies has two broad aims: to offer students in the various humanistic departments a chance to deepen their knowledge, in their own discipline, of Italian civilization; and to foster interdisciplinary study among students and faculty members who have an interest in ancient, early modern, and modern Italian studies and culture. The Program in Italian Studies sponsors a lecture series, graduate student symposia, fellowships for summer research in Italian archives, libraries, and museums, and a Graduate Certificate in Italian Studies.
