Italian studies, minor in

A minor in Italian studies requires at least 18 credits, none of which can be earned at the 100 level. Only six credits may be earned by completing ITAL 201 and ITAL 202 or ITAL 205. At least six credits must be taken at the 300 level or above from courses taught in Italian. The remaining six credits can be taken from courses taught in either Italian or English. Courses taught in English must focus on subjects related to Italian culture, such as literature in translation, cultural studies or Italian cinema.

Note: Language placement test results cannot substitute for completion of course work. Italian studies minors must take at least two upper-level courses at VCU in Italian.

The VCU Bulletin is in transition! As we move from this first iteration of our online Bulletin to a new product and process, what you find on this website is information for the 2014-15 academic year.

While much of the curricular information remains the same, changes that were approved with the effective date of fall 2015 will not be reflected on this website. Prospective students may wish to contact the school or department that administers their program of interest in order to discuss the most current curriculum and concentration options.

Enrolled students who are completing their studies under an effective Bulletin may continue to access the archives at, where past Bulletins are available to reference or download.

Our anticipated launch of the new VCU Bulletin is July 2015. To follow our progress, visit the new Bulletin blog.
