Minor in Italian
The Italian minor consists of up to 14 units of lower-division and from 6 to 12 units of upper-division coursework. Students must complete the lower-division sequence - or the equivalent - prior to beginning upper-division coursework. The program may waive some or all lower-division requirements if the student demonstrates appropriate competency through advising, by taking a placement test, or by having taken the equivalent coursework elsewhere. Regardless of placement, however, students must pass a minimum of 12 units to successfully complete the minor; this might involve taking more upper-division electives. At least 50% of the units for the Italian Minor need to be taken in residence at SFSU. For advising about placement, contact the Italian program coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
