Italian Majors/Minors

Information about studying abroad for Italian majors/minors.

Where to go

Italy, naturally! The EAP offers intensive language and culture programs, programs with "set" courses taught in Italian and/or English, as well as the opportunity to take a wide variety of regular host university courses, depending on your language skills. The best way to choose is to look over the options and consult with your UCLA Education Abroad Program counselor and your major advisor.

EAP offers the following programs in Italy

In addition, the UC Education Abroad Program offers three special features to help you choose the right program.

  • The Program Wizard can help you find possible programs of interest.
  • The Coursefinder database includes descriptions of all courses taken by UC students while on EAP programs. Please note that it does not include all courses offered by the host university, only those that have been taken and submitted for approval by UC students.
  • An up-to-date list of pre-approved EAP courses will soon be available.

What classes to take

All classes taken on the UC Education Abroad Program (EAP) are UC approved courses and count toward your 180 unit requirement for graduation; however, your major/minor department has the final authority to determine how the coursework is used to fulfill specific major requirements.

Courses are approved on a case by case basis. Before going abroad, students should discuss with the department advisor which EAP courses the department will approve for credit toward a major or minor. Students can often make changes to their study plan once they arrive in their country of choice, but should consult with the undergraduate staff advisor by e-mail first.
