Beyond satisfying the foreign language requirements in Italian at UConn, students electing this minor must complete six courses (18 credits) which must include ILCS 3239 and 3240 (or their ECE equivalent). The remaining 18 credits may be fulfilled by taking any ILCS courses offered at the 3000 and 4000 levels.
Education Abroad in Italy: Students are strongly encouraged to participate in a variety of UConn-sponsored Education Abroad programs (and also have the option of enrolling in non-sponsored programs). In either case, students should consult with the ILCS faculty to determine which courses will receive credits. Students who enroll in study abroad programs not sponsored by UConn do not necessarily receive UConn credits for their coursework. In addition, the following rules apply:
- A minimum of 12 of the minor credits must consist of Italian courses taken in residence.
- Up to six credits may be met by ILCS 3293, with the consent of the advisor.
- UConn’s Early College Experience courses may be counted towards the minor
The minor is offered by the Literatures, Cultures and Languages Department.
