Languages, Literatures and Cultures

Minor in Spanish, French or Italian

Complement your studies with a minor in Spanish, French or Italian.

Even students not wishing to major in a language can still pursue language studies. A minor in languages allows students to complement their studies, enrich their personal life, and acquire practical skills that can be applied to professional objectives.

Students who wish to minor in French, Italian or Spanish language studies must complete 18–24 credits in that language, depending on the student’s entry level. It is recommended that the student contact language faculty early for individual guidance in the development of an appropriate language minor.
