dictionaries

The Italian Language Program offers the possibility of completing all MAT course requirements in Italian in three consecutive summers, or of earning credit for professional development or continuing education. The Program is designed for individuals already teaching Italian, but also is open to prospective teachers at the K-12 school level. Credits acquired through the Italian Language Program may be accepted for state certification. While not mandatory, teachers are invited to apply for the MAT after the successful completion of two Italian courses in the World Languages Institute. Details of the MAT program are available at the Department of Italian or its web site at http://italian.rutgers.edu.
