Each year, over 200 students enroll in Italian Studies courses at Holy Cross selecting from among language, literature, and culture. The Italian Studies Program is housed in the Department of World Languages, Literatures, and Cultures.

Foreign Language Assistants

In addition to classroom learning, students continue to practice Italian in small practice sessions led by Italian foreign language assistants (FLAs). The FLAs reinforce classroom lessons through interactive activities and offer direct insight into contemporary Italian life and culture.
