Minor in Italian Studies

The Minor in Italian Studies provides exciting opportunities to gain global skills through engaging, culturally intensive classes and personalized instruction. With majors in history, music, international relations, communication, art history, or film, the Italian Studies Minor is ideally suited to add an international dimension to your specific field of interest. You will also have access to study abroad opportunities through a partnership with the University of Milan.

The Minor in Italian Studies requires 15 hours of ITAL coursework. ITAL 2001 and ITAL 2002 may be counted towards the minor; all remaining coursework must be at the upper-division level. Advanced speakers of Italian should consult with an Italian Studies advisor about testing options using the Advanced Standing examinations available in the Department of World Languages and Cultures.

A minimum of six (6) hours in the minor must be taken in residence at Kennesaw State University.
