Capstone


Italian Studies majors will complete their major capstone experience in their senior year. The major capstone experience in Italian Studies will consist of advanced work in the field or in an interdisciplinary area of the field. Senior majors can take an upper level experimental ITAS 398  course, when offered; engage in original and independent research by requesting an ITAS 399 ; or take an enhanced version of an upper level Italian course offered in their senior year. The learning outcome will generally consist of a long research paper in Italian in a literary or interdisciplinary area of student interest.

Notes


We encourage majors to spend their junior year abroad with an approved program, such as Middlebury in Florence or Ferrara and the Institute for the International Education of Students (IES) in Milan or Rome.
