Major in Romance Languages
This joint major requires a total of nine 4-point courses (36 points). Students may choose to combine Italian with French, Portuguese, or Spanish. One language is designated as primary, in which students must take five 4-point courses; students complete the other 4 courses in the secondary language. Thus, majors in Romance Languages are able to take advantage of the rich course offerings and resources of our world-renowned language departments and learn from distinguished scholars in both fields.
If Italian is the primary language, the Italian part of this major is satisfied by taking five 4-point courses (20 points) as follows:
1. Advanced Review of Modern Italian (ITAL-UA 30)
2. One conversation course chosen from among the following:
Conversations in Italian (ITAL-UA 101)
Italian through Cinema (ITAL-UA 107)
Italian through Opera (ITAL-UA 108)
3. One composition course chosen from among the following:
Creative Writing in Italian (ITAL-UA 103)
Advanced Compostion (ITAL-UA 105)
Translation (ITAL-UA 110)
4. Two advanced courses in either literature or culture and society, to be determined in consultation with an advisor in the Department of Italian Studies.

Internships do not count towards the Italian portion of the Romance Languages major.
