As a result of the university-wide budget recalls in October, the Department of Modern Languages will offer only one Italian course in fall 2018. Courses typically scheduled for the fall semester like Italian I and Italian III have been canceled. The discontinuation of Italian courses will cause the loss of one faculty member: Alessia Salamina, a visiting assistant professor. Salamina was not available for comment.

The department will only offer Italian for Travelers in the fall. Derek Hillard, head of the Department of Modern Languages, said the department relies on instructors in the area to teach that course, and that will be the case for next year.The only other Italian offering at Kansas State this fall is Italian Diction, a one-credit-hour class designed for students studying vocal music. The course is presumably unaffected by the cuts in Modern Languages because it is taught by the School of Music, Theatre and Dance faculty.
