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 ITAL: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 College of Education's Office of Student Services about requirements.
