Major

Italian Majors are required to complete between 10 and 12 courses at Georgetown depending on the results of the online placement exam. A student will take 12 courses if they begin in ITAL 011: Intensive Basic Italian, 11 if they begin in ITAL 032: Intensive Intermediate Italian, or 10 if they begin in ITAL 111: Intensive Advanced Italian.

One course taught in English may be applied toward the major. Students of Italian are strongly advised to take the ITAL 042: Gateway course as their English elective. This course satisfies the Humanities: Art, Literature, & Culture (HALC) core requirement of the College. 

Italian Majors are also required to spend a semester or an academic year studying at an Italian university. Take a look at the Italian study abroad programs available to Georgetown students here!
