Since Roman times, the Italian contribution to world culture has been enormous as it is obvious to anyone who steps foot in the country, however briefly. But Italy is not just a country of singular cultural importance. It is a major political partner in the European Union, and it is a leading force in fields such as engineering and architecture. It is the home of the design and fashion industries.

Your understanding of the Italian language will be further developed and refined during your year abroad, when you will experience life in a Italian-speaking country at first hand.
