Italian Studies

The Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures offers a major and a minor in Italian studies as well as a cross-school major in Italian studies and international business. Students majoring in Italian studies must take three specific 300-level courses, Italian conversation, advanced grammar and composition and Italian literature in context. Two 400-level Italian courses are required as well as four courses chosen from a range of interdisciplinary topics. When students choose an interdisciplinary course taught in English, they must add a Language Across the Curriculum component to the course. Students have the option of completing a senior thesis.

Italian studies minors must take three courses at the 300-level or above and two interdisciplinary courses. All students must have satisfied their COM2 general education language requirements before beginning 300-level coursework.
