Undergraduate Program

The Italian Program offers an interdisciplinary minor in Italian Studies, which requires a minimum of 18 credit hours beyond ITAL 202. A total of 12 credits from the Italian section must include Italian 206 or 207 and at least 3 courses at the 300 level, in English or in Italian. The remaining six credits will be chosen on the basis of the student's own interests and in consultation with an advisor, and can include courses taken in departments or programs in cognate fields such as Art History, Economics, Government, History, Interdisciplinary Studies, International Studies, Literary and Cultural Studies, Medieval and Renaissance, Music, Religion. Courses from these departments must contain considerable Italian content and be approved by the section coordinator.

Pre-approved study abroad credits will transfer automatically as elective credits in Italian (at the 100, 200, or 300 level). If you wish to count classes taken abroad toward satisfying the College's foreign language requirement, you must pass a placement test with a grade of 75 or above upon your return to get post-approval.
