    Italian

    Knowledge of Italian is essential for the study of history, literature, music, art, business, economics, and political science. Italy is home to a rich heritage of Western culture, and since the Middle Ages has been a world leader in literature, architecture, painting, sculpture, and music. The first University in Europe was founded in Bologna in 1088. Italy is one of the top ten economies in the world, and many companies are seeking people who are fluent in Italian.
