This program is part of the World Languages Department.

Italian is a Romance language, but probably not for the reason you think. While the sound of Italian may conjure up images of marble fountains in city squares, gilded gondolas floating along canals, lush vineyards rolling endlessly through the countryside, Italian is a Romance language because it is derived from Latin, the language of ancient Rome.

The Italian program at MCC offers two tracks:

Conversation Track – emphasizes speaking and listening skills. It is for tourists and those desiring minimal conversational ability only. Some of these courses are related to specific areas of employment, such as Spanish for Health Personnel.

Foundation Track – prepares students for courses above the 200-level at any university. The courses 101, 102, 201, 202 are university equivalent. This track is also for those desiring a balanced program. The four skills included: listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

Our students enjoy:

  • State-of-the-art language laboratory
  • Free tutoring services
  • Language training for specific work environments
  • Conversational partners
  • Study Abroad options in many different countries
