A minor in Italian Studies provides students with knowledge of the Italian language and familiarity with aspects of the culture, history, and society of Italy. Students may earn an Italian minor to complement any major in any discipline. A concentration in Italian language, literature, culture and civilization can also become the basis for graduate studies in Italian.  To learn more about the FLL – Italian Specialization, please contact the Undergraduate Coordinator:
