With a genuinely warm, familial atmosphere, the Romance Studies Department both nurtures and challenges students to master a foreign language within the cultural context of its native country. I fully enjoyed the balance the Romance Studies Department struck between developing grammatical competency in the written & spoken language and gaining cultural literacy. By immersing myself in classes ranging from the Italian-American Experience to Modern/Contemporary Spanish History, Art and Literature to the Literary Guide to Italy, there was never a dull moment during my four years as a Combined Italian and Spanish Studies major in this department.
