Italian Studies Concentration, Italian (BA)

Menu

Students who choose the Italian Studies concentration have tremendous flexibility in building their own cluster of courses to align with a particular facet of Italian, based on their academic interests or intended career path. In the case of double majors, the Italian Studies concentration allows students to meaningfully align their two programs of study so that one complements the other, with the concentration courses potentially double-counting between both majors.

After declaring the Italian major with the Studies concentration, students should meet with the Italian Program Director to discuss ideas and options for crafting a tailor-made Italian Studies concentration that best fits their college and post-graduate goals.
