The undergraduate minor in Italian requires a minimum of 15 s.h., including 12 s.h. earned in advanced Italian courses (prefix ITAL) numbered above 3002 taken at the University of Iowa. All courses for the minor must be taught in Italian. Images of Modern Italy (ITAL:2550) and Dante's Inferno (ITAL:4633), if taken for 4 s.h. (includes discussion section in Italian), will count toward the 12 s.h. of advanced courses required for the minor. Students must maintain a g.p.a. of at least 2.00 in all courses for the minor and in all UI courses for the minor. Course work in the minor may not be taken pass/nonpass. Furthering Language Incentive Program (FLIP) credit may not be counted toward the minor.
Those who plan to use their work toward a minor in Italian as academic background for earning teacher licensure should contact the Office of Student Services about requirements.
