Majors in Italian must complete a total of 12 advanced courses (48 quarter hours), comprised of a common 8-course core and a 4-course concentration in Italian Studies, Italian Language and Literature, or Commercial Italian.
Students who begin their study of Italian at DePaul with ITA 202 or higher may substitute a 300-level Italian elective course for any of the required 200-level courses. 300-level courses will vary based on quarterly offerings.
Open elective credit also is required to meet the minimum graduation requirement of 192 hours. Majors in Italian should select these courses in consultation with the Italian Program Director and Modern Languages Staff Advisor. Students can use their open electives to pursue a double major or one or more minors.
