Italian at the University of Mississippi


The University of Mississippi offers an undergraduate minor in Italian. The Department of Modern Languages offers elementary, intermediate and advanced Italian courses that emphasize the language and culture of Italy. Students may study Italian in order to fulfill their Liberal Arts language requirement. The minor in Italian requires the completion of 15 hours of Italian courses, beyond the 100 level (i.e., 200-, 300-, 400- or 500-level courses). Credit may be earned for studying Italian in Italy, and the Department will help the student in selecting an outstanding program.
