Italian Studies Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

A Minor in Italian Studies is a very flexible program that allows you to organize and design a curriculum that benefits your interests, be it in language, literature, cinema, art and culture at large. You can choose from a variety of existing courses in Italian language, art, history and film. If you have a personal interest in a specific subject related to Italy and Italian culture that is not covered in the regular courses offered, you can pursue it through a series of independent studies.

Please see the UNLV College of Liberal Arts Department of World Languages and Cultures web page at http://www.unlv.edu/wlc for information about department programs, faculty and facilities.  Degree worksheets are available at Minor in Italian Studies | Academics | University of Nevada, Las Vegas (unlv.edu)
