Minor in Italian
- Six courses numbered CAS LI 254 and above, including at least one from the LI 350 to 352 course sequence and at least one from literature courses at the 400 or 500 level.
- Up to four courses taken at Boston University’s Study Abroad program at our Centro Studi in Padua may count toward the minor.
- Students may include up to three transfer courses from other colleges, universities, or non-Boston University study abroad programs and must take a minimum of three courses (or a minimum of two, if they have four courses approved for credit toward the minor from Boston University’s Centro Studi in Padua) on the Charles River Campus.
- Internships taken through Boston University or other study abroad programs may not be credited toward the minor. A grade of C or higher is required in all courses taken toward the minor.
A placement test is required of all students whose most recent course in Italian was taken in high school or at a college other than Boston University and who wish to continue their study of this language here. Information regarding online placement exams is available in the department or on the departmental website.
