The Italian Studies Minor
The Italian Studies minor provides students with the opportunity to explore the language, culture, and society of Italy through an interdisciplinary program. The minor consists of five courses beyond the Elementary Italian (ITAL 401-402) sequence and may include one course from a related field of study (e.g., ARTS 681-682, ECS 400, HIST 641) with a minimum grade of C. In addition, students must demonstrate linguistic proficiency at the level of intermediate Italian (ITAL 504 or an equivalent).
The Italian Studies Minor is advantageous for applicants to graduate and professional schools in Italian, modern languages, linguistics, film, history, theater, philosophy, and law. It is also a valuable asset for careers in economics, international affairs, international business, fashion, teaching, communications, translation, interpretation, government, and Foreign Service.
New students will be assigned to the proper course in consultation with the section coordinator.
