The Italian Studies Program
The Italian Program offers an interdisciplinary minor in Italian Studies, which requires a minimum of 18 credit hours beyond ITAL 202 or 203. A minimum of 15 credits from the Italian section must include Italian 206 and 208 and at least 3 courses at the 300 level (of which one must be in Italian). The remaining three credits will be chosen on the basis of the student’s own interests and in consultation with an advisor, and can come from 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.
Study abroad credits will be reviewed by the program coordinator upon a student’s return to campus. Once approved, study abroad credits will transfer 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.
