Welcome to the Department of French and Italian. In this program, students and faculty demonstrate the excitement and adventure that can come from studying French and Italian languages and cultures at The University of Texas at Austin. Undergraduate students share personal experiences from their language classes and traveling, in faculty-led study programs, to Europe, to explore Rome in Italy and Lyon in France. Faculty course presentations cover a wide-range of topics, from Dante’s underworld to French film, from Italian art history to French life-changing experiences. For many UT students, encountering new languages and cultures through UT's foreign language study programs has been a "mind-blowing" experience. We hope this video showcases that experience and inspires you to learn more about these wonderful languages.
