Italian Minor

Italy is a popular destination for tourists seeking all kinds of adventure because of its proximity to both the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea. As a result, the tourism, hospitality and culinary industries have become a central part of Italy's economy. By pairing an Italian minor with a major in a business discipline, students situate themselves to play important roles in the growth of these industries while learning more about the country's culture. An Italian minor and a major from the College of Arts and Sciences strengthens academic backgrounds and prepares students to take on roles in cultural preservation, diplomacy, museum education and the arts, among others.
