Benvenuti! Welcome to Italian Studies!

The Italian Studies program at Dalhousie is the only one of its kind in Atlantic Canada, and can provide a unique addition to your undergraduate degree.

We offer a range of courses in Italian language and culture at the undergraduate level, which can contribute to your Honours, Double Major or Minor*.

The program focuses on a range of topics from national cinema to cuisine, as well as intense language classes, to provide the student with an in-depth knowledge of Italian history and culture. We are also fortunate to have a very active student society in Amici Miei, who organize tutoring and language clubs outside of class hours.

The Italian Studies program is housed in the Department of French.

*The Senate Academic Programs and Research Committee has approved, on behalf of the Senate, the proposal for suspension of enrolment of the BA in Italian Studies (honours and major). Students currently declared as Majors or Honours are being accommodated and admissions to the Minor remain unchanged.”
