It is essential that you make the most of your time at The Ohio State. To this end, we recommend that you strongly consider double majoring. Double majors are stronger earners, more innovative, and are great networkers. Today’s students often combine majors and minors with a second (or even third) major or minor. Students from many different departments are continuing their study of French and Italian beyond the required GEC courses.

Students in French and Italian also major or minor in subjects as varied as Arabic, Architecture, Art History, Biology, Biomedical Science, Business, Communications, Comparative Studies, Computer Systems Engineering, English, Exercise Science, Hospitality Management, International Studies, Italian, Japanese, Linguistics, Logistics, Microbiology, Molecular Genetics, Nursing, Nutrition, Physics, Political Science, Psychology, Russian, Spanish and Textiles.
