The Department of World Languages and Literatures at Western Michigan University offers courses in Italian.


We invite you to make an appointment with Dr. Molly Lynde-Recchia if you have any questions about placement in Italian or about Italian studies in general. While we currently offer only Basic Italian (1000 and 1010), it is possible to earn additional credits in Italian by studying abroad.  You are encouraged to meet each semester with your curriculum advisor, typically in the College of Arts and Sciences or the College of Education and Human Development.

Study abroad

The department offers study abroad options for Italian studies. If you desire to earn Italian credits through participation in a study abroad program contact the Office of Study Abroad. Study abroad in Italian must be preapproved by Dr. Molly Lynde-Recchia before it is undertaken.
