Minor in Italian Studies

The Minor in Italian Studies (19 credits) is an interdisciplinary program designed for students with intermediate proficiency who want to enrich their knowledge of Italian cultural studies (film, media, music, art, literature, language, and history) beyond the language requirement of the Bachelor of Arts in Italian. Students take a combination of Italian language courses (through level 2002, 4th semester Italian) and electives in literature, film, or some other aspect of Italian history and culture. One of these electives must be taught in Italian language (where the whole course is conducted in the language and assignments are done in Italian) and the other two courses may be conducted in English (one of these must be offered by the Italian Department, the other may be from another related department with the approval of the faculty advisor).
