Italian in 4 year colleges – how we look nationally

Copy of Map of the United States

Regularly, the MLA collects data for their investigation of languages other than English in the U.S. Their most recent report, released Feb 11/15, reflects the trends of which we are all too aware in the Humanities…smaller numbers studying that which should be backbone of every college educated individual. Nationally, our picture shows a loss of student enrollments (11.3% since the previous MLA report, 2009) vs. aggregate language enrollments decline of 6.7%

P.S. My institution, Montclair State, has seen increased enrollments, and now ranks #1 in the state of NJ, and #5 nationally🙂

  1. Vorrei aggiungere che in Utah, alla Brigham Young University, offriamo due corsi di laurea in italiano (Italian major e Italian Studies major), di cui il primo da oltre 40 anni, con una media di 10-15 laureati ogni anno. Grazie!
