Nick Gugerty is a fourth-year student in the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures here at the University of Delaware. He is a Three Languages major—concentrating in French, Italian, and Russian—with a Political Science minor. With graduation quickly approaching in the spring, he’s excited to see what new opportunities his degree will bring for him next year.
Nick was born and raised in Newark, Delaware, only a few minutes away from UD campus. He attended Newark Charter High School and quickly developed an interest in foreign languages and cultures. At 16, he participated in an exchange at Lycée François Premier in Fontainebleau, France, before deciding to major in Three Languages at UD. In addition to French, Nick took to Italian and Russian and enjoys learning Spanish and Dutch in his free time.
Since starting at UD, Nick has taken courses in French film adaptation, French poetry and theater, Russian conversation, Italian World War II cinema and Italian Medieval and Renaissance literature, among many other interesting multilingual courses. He attended L’Université Paris-1 Panthéon-Sorbonne in the spring of 2019 where he gained an immersive experience of college life outside of the United States. He still maintains close ties with the friends he met through the Erasmus Programme in France. While in Europe, he also had the unique opportunity of visiting Polizzi Generosa, a small town in Sicily where his great-grandparents and grandmother grew up before immigrating to America. Nick is now back in Delaware finishing up his final year of his undergraduate studies and works as a TA for Prof. Judy Celli in her French 107 courses.
What’s on the horizon for Nick after graduation is not set in stone, given the uncertainty of the coronavirus epidemic. As of now, he intends to spend the summer of 2021 as an au pair for a family in Milan before starting a masters program in the fall. Nick is applying to graduate programs in translation and interpretation and hopes to eventually establish a career for himself in government.
Nick wants to thank some of his professors—Prof. Celli, Dr. Steinberger, Dr. Oancea, Dr. Salsini, Dr. Finney, and Dr. Hulings—for their outstanding mentorship and for fostering his love of foreign languages and cultures here at UD.
