The Italian studies minor is offered by the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures. It 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.

Study Abroad

Students may participate in the UNH-in-Italy Program in the medieval city of Ascoli Piceno for a semester, year, or summer (see ITAL 685). The program allows students to register for UNH courses taught by UNH faculty. Students with advanced language skills also may enroll in courses at the University of Ascoli Piceno. Internships are available. There is no language prerequisite.
