University of Pittsburgh



Programs Overview

With its strong interdisciplinary focus and located in a city with a rich cultural life, the University of Pittsburgh’s French and Italian graduate programs offer a higher education experience like no other academic institution this side of the Atlantic.

Small by design, the programs allow students to work closely with individual faculty mentors to customize their own curriculum or to investigate specialized topics in a tutorial setting.
