A minor program is offered in Italian. Declaration of a minor is open to any student enrolled at CU Boulder, regardless of college or school.
To declare an Italian minor, go to the Academic Advising Center website and make an appointment with the Italian advisor.
Students must consult with the Italian advisor during each registration period and before a study abroad program. All courses must carry an ITAL subject code, students may apply a maximum of 3 credit hours from Italian courses taught in English, and students may apply credit hours to the Italian minor earned through a CU Boulder Study Abroad program in Italy. Specific course equivalencies must be determined by the Italian advisor.
Students may apply a maximum of 9 transfer credit hours to the Italian minor, and a maximum of 6 credit hours at the upper-division level. Specific course equivalencies must be determined by an Italian faculty member.
Students must maintain an overall and Italian grade point average of 2.000 (C). They must earn a grade of C- or higher in ALL courses required for the Italian minor and may not take minor requirement courses pass/fail.
