RainboxItalian at Illinois, one of the oldest Italian programs in the U.S., is also one of the few Italian Studies programs that offers courses from the undergraduate to the doctoral level. The Program is built on the idea of interdisciplinary coordination and it is meant for students who are interested in Italian culture and language at any level. We focus on providing transferable skills, comparative awareness, and analytical abilities to students interested in exploring thousands of years of Italian experience in the Mediterranean, European, and Global contexts.

The Italian Program offers a wide variety of levels.
