Certificate in Italian Studies

The College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Visual and Performing Arts offer a certificate in Italian Studies. The history of the geographic expression that today we call Italy is the sum of many particular histories and cultures. Yet, in their diversity and diaspora, the people of Italy have preserved, through time and place, a sense of common identity. For this reason, to understand the complexity of past and present experiences of Italians in the peninsula and of their descendants abroad, the Undergraduate Certificate in Italian Studies is designed with a broad interdisciplinary perspective.

The certificate will encompass courses in several departments in two colleges. The majority of courses will focus on the study of history and culture of the people who inhabit or originated from the Italian peninsula and the islands of Sardinia and Sicily from pre-historic times to the present. In addition, however, offerings will also focus on the Italian diaspora with specific reference to the experiences of people of Italian descent in the many nations in which they settled from the early 19th century to the present.

Students are required to take between 23 and 28 semester hours from a list of courses approved for the certificate. A Faculty Advisory Committee will coordinate the Certificate of Italian Studies. Students may receive credit for courses, not included in the below list, or (if circumstances require it) may substitute a required course with another, by petitioning and if approved by the Advisory Committee.

Study Abroad: Students in the Italian Studies Certificate program are strongly encouraged to study abroad for the summer, a semester or a year in the USF in Italy program or in any other accredited program. The Advisory Committee will determine which courses taken as part of the overseas experience will count toward fulfilling the requirements for the certificate.

For additional information, send a message to Dr. Giovanna Benadusi or Dr. Fraser Ottanelli, Coordinators of the Certificate in Italian Studies at itastudies@cas.usf.edu.

NOTE: Students may apply a maximum of sixteen credits in the same department toward fulfilling the requirements for the certificate.
