The classical Major in Italian, which requires thirteen courses in Italian, offers an assurance of complete proficiency in all aspects of Italian studies: language, literature, film and culture.
Thirteen upper division Italian courses, including 100, 103A, 103B, 113, 114A or 114B, 116A or 116B; one course from 118 or 119; one course from 120 or 121; four courses from 114A through 191; 180. One upper division elective course in a field relevant to Italian studies from outside the department may be substituted with consent of the undergraduate adviser. Majors who select courses taught in English must do additional work from the original Italian texts in consultation with the course instructor.
Major in Italian and Special Fields
A unique opportunity for undergraduates in the Department of Italian at UCLA is the Major in Italian and Special Fields. There are sixteen such fields from English and Art History to Film and Women's Studies. Conceived as the most flexible major as possible, the B.A. in Italian and Special Fields allows students maximum freedom to construct and pursue individualized courses of study. Dividing academic work equally between Italian and a field of choice (roughly six courses in each), majors of Italian and Special Fields are particularly well-equipped to pursue careers where knowledge of Italian enhances more specific expertise.
