Students majoring in any discipline may pursue a minor in Italian, which is designed to provide the student with basic fluency in spoken and written Italian and a general introduction to Italian culture.

Students who complete the minor in Italian should achieve proficiency in the language equivalent to ITA 2020/Intermediate Italian II. All students interested in Italian are strongly encouraged to participate in the college’s summer study abroad program in Italy.

Students interested in the minor should submit a completed Application for a Program of Minor Study to the School of Humanities main office. The student is assigned a minor advisor in Italian after consultation with the Program Chair of the Language and Culture Department.
