Students earning a MA or PhD in a related field can add a graduate minor in Italian to their degree program.
The minor lends breadth to your program while deepening your understanding of the field of inquiry, theoretical engagement, and methodologies of Italian studies today. You will also advance linguistic skills necessary for advanced research in various disciplines, such as Art History, Architecture, French, Comparative Literature, History, English, and Music.
The minor program is shaped to suit the particular research needs and interests of each student. Courses are selected in consultation with the Director of Graduate Studies of Italian Studies from courses at the 4-xxx, 5-xxx, and 8-xxx level courses. Students may also elect to do a Directed Readings course with faculty affiliated with Italian Studies. Students must plan to complete at least 6 credits in approved courses for a MA minor or 12 credits for a PhD minor. Coursework from the major field may not be applied to satisfy minor field requirements.
