Fellowships for Masters in Italian at Boston College

Dec 06, 2012 915

Boston College Department of Romance Languages and Literatures invites applications for the M.A. programs in Italian Studies. The department is committed to the professional formation of students, who graduate with broad experience in the analysis of literary texts, media and the arts, and strong pedagogical training and practice. We expect an incoming class of 5-6 students to maintain the low student-faculty ratio that allows individualized attention for each student. All graduate students are supported by teaching fellowships, which include full tuition remission and a stipend.

The program welcomes both American and Italian applicants, and seeks a balance of native and non-native speakers. Most courses are taught in Italian. Applicants must have a firm command of the Italian language.The B.A. in Italian is preferred but not required.

In the past two years, Masters candidates from Boston College have accepted prestigious Ph.D. fellowships at University of California, Berkeley, New York University, Johns Hopkins and The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Other students have chosen secondary teaching as a career, and have taken positions in some of the best public schools in the area.

Please inform qualified students about the program at Boston College.

The deadline for all M.A. applicants is February 1, 2011. For more information:
