The Italian Major and Minor

The Italian Major

A major in Italian can lead to a variety of national and international careers in foreign service, international banking and trade, fashion marketing, film, journalism, and teaching. Valuable experience can be gained through the many study abroad options available to Italian majors in Florence, Rome, and Bologna.

The major requires a minimum of 32 credits, including courses in Italian conversation and composition, literature, and culture. 

The Italian Minor

The minor requires at least 16 credits in Italian at the 200 and 300 levels.

Teacher Licensure in Italian

Students interested in teaching Italian can combine their course work with a minor in education. See the Department of Psychology and Education’s Teacher Licensure Program for more information.
