Italian Studies


Italian Studies enable you to explore the long and fascinating linguistic and cultural heritage of one of Australia’s most important migrant groups and equip you with appropriate knowledge and skills for communicating in the Italian language. Through language study, you will acquire an understanding of the social and cultural contexts in which the Italian language is used and develop an understanding of Italy, its place in the world and its legacy in Australia.

At UNSW, Italian Studies combine the teaching of practical language skills with the study of history, society, culture and customs. You will gain knowledge and skills relevant to a wide range of career paths from business, trade and commerce to diplomacy, tourism and the media.
