“The Italian program at URI gives students the outlets they need in order to succeed. They provide out-of-classroom study hours, are extremely helpful with the study abroad process and professors are readily available to answer any questions or concerns.”

“I learned Italian because I loved it, but never thought it would have been as critical to my career success as it has been. It opened doors for me that would have otherwise been shut, and has enabled me to foster relationships with key people simply because I have a deep knowledge and respect their country of origin and culture.”
