Objectives for the Minor in Italian Studies

The minor in Italian Studies offers students in other disciplines the opportunity to incorporate the knowledge of Italian language and culture into their program of studies. In our increasingly global world, this may be particularly valuable to students pursuing Business, Health, Science, and Education fields. The minor in Italian can be combined with majors related to Humanities, since Italy has made key contributions to these fields. Students will achieve an advanced intermediate proficiency in the Italian language, and become acquainted with major literary, historical and artistic developments of Italy throughout its history.

Requirements for the Minor in Italian Studies

The minor in Italian Studies requires a minimum of 18 semester hours. Prerequisite for the program is the introductory sequence ITAL 1000  & ITAL 1100  or equivalent proficiency as determined by proficiency exam, although ITAL 1000  and ITAL 1100  will not be counted towards the minor.

Culture Courses


Note:


Further Course Options include courses taken in Italy, in a Fitchburg State University program or Fitchburg State University—accredited program, upon permission of the Italian Studies advisor.

No more than six transfer credits will be accepted as credit towards the minor. Transferred credits must have received a minimum grade of 2.5. Students must maintain a 2.5 grade point average in courses towards the minor to remain in the program.
