An Italian program is so much more than a cultural exploration of language. By investing in their Italian program, CCSU is moving their humanities program to the forefront of education. Through Italian studies, one gains knowledge and appreciation for art, art history, music, geography, architecture, science and more, thus creating global citizens and language competent scholars.
