Italian majors elect a minimum of 30 upper-division credits in Italian for a total of 10 courses:
|Select at least 7 courses taught in Italian 1||21|
|Select up to 2 courses taught in English, either from the department's offerings or from a list of approved courses in other departments||6|
|Select one capstone seminar taught in English||3|
This may include IT 0211 with a grade of B or better.
Students select their course of study from a variety of offerings including courses on creative writing, contemporary culture and film, the short story, literature of the New World, theater, and Dante (which is offered in translation; majors are encouraged to do their written work in Italian). Italian majors also have the opportunity to apply for internships that count towards the major. Students are encouraged to study abroad at our affiliate in Florence either during the junior year or in the summer. The final course for the Italian major must be taken at Fairfield University.
All majors are urged to work closely, as soon as possible, with an advisor of their choice to plan a program.
