Italian Studies Minor

Courses in Italian language are designed to provide opportunities for students to achieve proficiency in four key areas: reading, writing, listening and speaking, while adding to their cultural knowledge of Italy. Additional coursework focused on areas of Italian history, culture, and/or literature completed in either Italian or English taken at Salve Regina University or while participating in an approved study abroad program in Italy can be used to complete the Italian Studies minor.
