Course offerings for Italian Studies vary frequently and often include Special Topics, Topics In, and Honors College courses. Before registration each semester, a list of eligible courses is posted as a See Also list in the Schedule of Courses (Classic Version). Many of those courses will not show up immediately in students’ degree audits. The courses listed in this table are always eligible and should automatically be applied in degree audits.
With the approval of a minor advisor, ITAL 2108 may be substituted for ITAL 2100, and ITAL 2208 may be substituted for ITAL 2200. ITAL 2109 and ITAL 2209 cannot be counted toward the minor.


Italian language through ITAL 1200: Elementary II or the equivalent.

Introductory and intermediate courses for various subject areas may be necessary to reach the courses at the 2000-level or above applicable to the minor.

Other Information

In the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS), only one course may overlap between a major and a minor or between two minors.

Courses for the minor and/or its pre/co-requisites that are cross-listed in the catalog or schedule of courses under another course prefix may be taken under that other prefix and still count for these requirements.

With the approval of the chair/director, courses that applied to the minor in previous years but have since been deactivated may be applied to this year’s minor requirements if they are reactivated.

For a Bachelor of Arts degree, no more than 45 credits in courses with the same departmental prefix may be used toward completion of the 120 credits required for graduation. For a Bachelor of Science degree, the maximum is 50 credits.

At least half of the credits used to complete minor requirements must be taken at the University of Vermont.
