Italian Studies Minor

The minor in Italian studies offers students in other disciplines the opportunity to incorporate the knowledge of Italian language and culture into their program of studies. In our increasingly global world, this may be particularly valuable to students pursuing business, health, science, and education fields. The minor in Italian can be combined with majors related to humanities, since Italy has made key contributions to these fields. Students will achieve an advanced intermediate proficiency in the Italian language, and become acquainted with major literary, historical and artistic developments of Italy throughout its history.

The prerequisite for the program is the introductory sequence ITAL 1000 and 1100 or equivalent proficiency as determined by a proficiency exam, although ITAL 1000 and 1100 will not be counted toward the minor.
