A superior level proficiency in Italian is required. Senior lecturers teach all levels of undergraduate Italian language, may assist in beginner and intermediate level Italian course coordination; keep abreast of current trends in second language acquisition and foreign language pedagogy; stir interest in Italian culture by structuring their language teaching around intersections with Italian literature, music, cinema, and the arts in general.
