The Department of Italian

Trinity College (established 1592) is exceptionally strong in languages: more than a dozen languages are currently taught in the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies, part of a large and diverse Faculty of Arts & Humanities.

In Italian, we offer two four-year degree courses: the European Studies degree, and Italian language, literature and culture as one half of a Two-Subject Moderatorship. Including postgraduate researchers, there are over 120 students in the Department. View the video to learn more about chosing Italian.
