Welcome to the Study abroad section of Italian!
Studying abroad is life-altering (and also a lot of fun) and there are many locations where Saint Mary's students can go!
We strongly recommend taking at least one semester of Italian language prior to your semester aborad in Italy. Learning the basics of the language will provide not only safety and the ability to communicate in an emergency, but above all the potential to become embedded in the culture in ways a tourist never will. We offer beginning language Italian 001 and intensive beginning language Italian 021 in the fall, as well as Italian 001 during January Term.
We also strongly encourage all students to take Italian 060 - Italian Civilization for Travel Courses - as an introduction to Italian life and cultural prior to travelling.
We have programs in the following locations:
