Italian Studies

      Tunxis offers a variety of courses for students wishing to learn the French and Italian languages and about each country’s history and culture.

       For students who plan to transfer to complete the requirements for a Bachelor of Arts degree in French or Italian at one of the four Connecticut state universities or Charter Oak State College, enrolling in the college’s French Studies or Italian Studies Transfer Ticket degree pathway program is a good choice. By entering this program, students are able to start their course work at Tunxis and take advantage of its high-quality instruction and more affordable community college tuition and fees. Upon completion of the CSCU Pathway Transfer: French Studies or CSCU Pathway Transfer: Italian Studies associate degree; students are guaranteed full junior status and can complete a bachelor’s degree in their major without losing any credits or being required to take extra credits or incur additional expenses.

         Those who are interested in any of the languages or who are considering transferring to a college outside the CSCU system should consider the Liberal Arts and Science associate in arts degree program.

Students who are thinking of transferring are encouraged to meet with their academic advisors to discuss their plans and how Tunxis courses transfer to other institutions.

A merger of Connecticut's 12 community colleges is underway. As a part of this merger, modifications will be made to academic programs. Students who do not complete their programs by the end of the Spring 2023 term will be matched with the Connecticut State Community College (CT State) program that most closely aligns with the student's Spring 2023 program and is offered at the current Tunxis Community College location. The College is committed to students completing their education with a minimum of disruption. Further details can be found and will be updated on the Frequently Asked Questions page: ct.edu/ctstate/academics.
