Honors and Honors Program. Candidates for high or highest honors in Italian must write a senior thesis under the direction of a faculty member. For this purpose, honors candidates must enroll in Italian 194H (3 units) and Italian 195H (3 units). Normally, a student will undertake the honors project during the first two quarters of the senior year; other arrangements must be authorized by the department chair. Only students who, at the end of the junior year (135 units), have attained a cumulative grade-point average of 3.500 in courses required for the major will be eligible for the honors program. The requirements for earning high and highest honors in Italian are in addition to the regular requirements for the major in Italian.
Education Abroad Program. The department of French and Italian strongly encourages students to study abroad in the Summer Abroad program (Rome), the Quarter Abroad Program (Florence), or the Education Abroad Program. Applicable courses are accepted for credit in the major or the minor programs.
Teaching Credential Subject Representative. See the Major Adviser above; see the Teaching Credential/M.A. Program.

Quarter Abroad Program.

The UC Davis Quarter Abroad Program and the Italian Program offer an exciting Italian Language and Culture Program in Florence, Italy. While studying abroad in Florence, students will earn 23-28 UC Davis quarter units and will experience the richness and vitality of Italian and European culture.

Participants fulfill three-quarters-worth of Italian language study, enroll in culture and film courses, integrate into the Florentine community through meaningful internships (with transcript notation), and explore electives in areas such as art history, photography, and food science.

There is no language requirement, and all registered UC Davis students with 2.000 GPA and above, good academic standing, and good disciplinary standing are eligible to apply.
