Stony Brook University offers one of the most comprehensive undergraduate programs in Italian Studies in the nation. The program is housed in the Department of European Languages, Literatures, and Cultures.

Our program includes courses in Italian Language from the elementary level to the most advanced courses in language, literature, culture, linguistics, and cinema, in both Italian and English. Click here for the undergraduate list of offerings in Italian and English

Our undergraduate students have a choice of two tracks for the BA, one with emphasis in language and literature, and another in Italian Studies, and two tracks for the minor. Click here for details. We also offer a minor in Italian American Studies.

At the graduate level we offer the MA degree in Italian, or in combination with either Spanish or French as part of the MA in Romance Languages.

Teacher Certification Program: Students in Italian have the option to add an Education Program curriculum leading to the New York State Teacher Certification, both at the undergraduate and graduate level (MAT), or combine both BA and BAT in a five year degree program.

Dante's poetry: We have set up a web site to offer a translation of Dante's poetry. Visit our Stony Brook Dante Project.

Two international journals of Italian and Italian American Studies are published at Stony Brook: Forum Italicum and Gradiva.


Housed on the Stony Brook campus is the Center for Italian Studies. The Center fosters academic and cultural events and conferences, and in cooperation with the Study Abroad Office, organizes the Summer Program in Rome and the exchange program with LUMSA.
