The Italian Language & Culture Minor provides students with competence in the Italian language as well as a critical understanding of cultural, social and historical aspects of Italy. Language learning is integrated with the development of cultural awareness, and students have the opportunity to explore such areas as Italian sociolinguistics, cinema, music, gender studies, postcolonial, migration and women's literature. Students with existing knowledge of Italian can begin at a more advanced level, and the exact sequence of courses depends on the level at which the student begins the minor.
