Italian (IT) - (ARCHIVE)

PROFESSOR LEON F. LYDAY, Head

The major offers training in the skills required for fluency in Italian and a grounding in Italian culture, civilization, and literature. Its aim is to open to the student both the traditions of one of the major formative components of the Western world and the continuing vitality of modern Italian life.

As one of the humanistic programs of the College of the Liberal Arts, the Italian major is not designed to be directly professional and vocational. Nevertheless, the requirement structure of the major, which includes two courses (8 credits) in another Romance language or Latin, leaves room for the election of a dual-major program leading to career opportunities in government services, social services, secondary and higher education, business, and foreign commerce and tourism.

For the B.A. degree in Italian, a minimum of 126 credits is required.

ITALIAN MINOR: Students must select enough courses (at least 6 credits at the 400 level) in Italian to account for 18 credits. Courses given in English such as Civilization or Literature in Translation may not be credited toward the minor.
