Italian Minor Curriculum
The minor in Italian is a program consisting of six, three-credit courses in which students pursue studies in Italian beyond the beginning and intermediate levels. In consultation with departmental advisors, students combine their work with other academic disciplines and develop particular strengths and interests in Italian literature, language, or culture. Students pursuing the Minor in Italian are strongly encouraged to study abroad.
