The Department of Italian Studies has provided information for students who plan to study abroad. Review your department’s responses to the Major Advising Questionnaires below, then contact the department directly with any additional questions.
Study Abroad for Italian Studies Majors (PDF) N/A
Berkeley Programs Questionnaire
Yes. Venice and Trieste: http://studyabroad.berkeley.edu/program/summerabroad/venice
Yes. Italian 1-4 and Italian N160 from the Italian Studies Summer Abroad program satisfy Italian Studies major/minor coursework. Italian 11 and 12, also offered in the Venice and Trieste, do not.
Majors or minors planning to study abroad must consult in advance with the Student Services Advisor in Italian Studies for a preliminary review of coursework from other programs before they apply.
UCEAP Programs Questionnaire
Three courses (12 units) for the Italian Studies major and two courses (8 units) for the minor.
No. Students set up an appointment with the Student Services Advisor to create a study list plan.
Advance consultation by appointment with the Student Services Advisor to 1) create a study list plan, 2) email UCEAP course links, syllabi (when available) as scanned or other docs prior to application. All potential courses must be reviewed and receive preliminary approval by the 14th week of classes.
It may be possible with advance consultation with the Student Services Advisor during the early half of their junior year. The student would need to be in residence during their final semester to qualify.
No. Instead, students should complete Italian 1, 2, 3 and 4 prior to departure.
The Student Services Adviser reviews and signs off on the form.
Currently our department is not utilizing Academic holds for our majors. We contact students studying abroad prior to Phase I registration and require them to contact the Student Services Advisor with confirmation of 1) the courses they are enrolled in while studying abroad to include course links and syllabi and 2) a proposed study list for the following semester, either for the second semester abroad or UC Berkeley registration for the returning semester. Review and approval is conducted via email exchange.
All major requirements must be completed prior to their final semester with the exception of electives.
Independent Programs Questionnaire
Majors or minors planning going abroad must consult in advance with the Student Services Adviser for preliminary review of all potential coursework before they apply to a semester or year program.
