The Minor in Italian Studies offers students the opportunity to explore the interdisciplinary field of Italian speaking Europe and civilization. While complementing the students’ areas of specialization, particularly in the fields of Italian art, architecture, and history it will allow them to develop proficiency in all Italian language skills.
