All students pursuing an Italian Studies minor wishing to count (a) study abroad course(s) or other experience(s) towards the minor must successfully complete a Study Abroad Course Equivalency Application form, available on the Departmental of Classical and Modern Languages website, and receive approval of that application. Prior to completing that form, students must consult with the chair of the Italian Studies Committee. Failure to consult, and to fill out and gain approval of the Course Equivalency request, may result in some or all credits not being awarded for courses taken abroad.
  • A minimum of nine credits of the coursework for the Italian Studies minor must be completed at Truman State University or through a Truman State University faculty-led program.
  • No grade of “D” is accepted toward the Italian Studies Minor.
