Students interested in a minor in Italian are asked to contact one of the advisors in Hagerty Hall, Room 355 for information about the minor. Students should also file the Minor form with their college office.
The minor in Italian consists of 15 hours of course work beyond 1103 or 5101. All courses are three credits unless otherwise indicated.
Italian minors must take four courses taught in the Italian language. These courses must include Italian 2102 or a 3000-level course, and at least one 4000-level or above course taught in Italian. In addition, students take one course taught in English (see list below).
Up to 6 credits of 3798.01 or 5797 (study abroad) may be counted toward the minor. However, all minors must take 2102 or one 3000-level course, and at least one 4000-level or above course taught in Italian.
Up to 3 credits of any combination of 2193, 2194, or 5193 and up to 6 credits of 5194 may be counted toward the minor provided that they are taught in the Italian language.
Up to 3 credits of 4998 (or 4998H) may be counted toward the minor provided that the research is in the Italian language.
If you complete the minor following these guidelines, you need only file your Minor Program Form with your college office. Any variation from the program described here needs the approval of the appropriate advisor in the Department of French and Italian or one of the advisors in Hagerty Hall, Room 355.
