About Italian at University of Pittsburgh
Through an intensive two-year period of study, research, and apprenticeship, students wishing to continue their studies are given individualized advising with the goal of identifying PhD programs that best match their goals and interests. This might mean doctoral study at Pitt in related fields like Linguistics or Theater, or in Pitt's new and innovative Critical European Culture Studies PhD. More often, with a Pitt MA in hand, our students have been impressively successful at securing admission and funding at the best Italian PhD programs in the country—Berkeley, Brown, Duke, Indiana, Illinois, Madison-Wisconsin, U of Michigan, NYU, UNC, U of Oregon, U of Texas-Austin, Stanford, and Yale, just in the last 20 years' worth of graduates.
Pitt MA alums have also been successful in obtaining teaching positions in the profession: our graduates currently occupy faculty positions at Bucknell College, Santa Clara University, the University of Alberta, the University of Texas-Austin, and the University of Oklahoma. Others are pedagogical and curricular leaders at Columbia University and private language schools around the country; still others teach Italian in primary and secondary education positions in the Pittsburgh region and beyond. Many of our more recent graduates are working in language-related positions in Pittsburgh's booming tech sector.
