Add a minor in Italian and Italian American Studies to your major and more professional opportunities will open up for you! Employers in the fields of business, law, communication, fashion, tourism (among others) seek for candidates who are proficient in one (or more!) foreign language and culture. Job interviewers will value your open-mindedness, your ability to read analytically and think critically, your knowledge of history and understanding of Italian culture and society in its development. Our courses expose students to the most innovative critical, analytical, and theoretical approaches in Italian studies today, providing a solid foundation for advanced and postgraduate studies. Students report that their training in Italian significantly enhanced their professional and academic opportunities.
Minors are complementary to degree programs. Undergraduate applicants interested in this minor should apply directly to a bachelor program or as an undecided student.
