This immersion is closed to students majoring in international and global studies who have chosen an area of study in Italian language, a field specialization in Europe, or are native speakers of Italian.

   MLIT-301    Intermediate Italian I
   MLIT-302    Intermediate Italian II
   MLIT-401    Advanced Italian I
   MLIT-402    Advanced Italian II
With MLC faculty adviser permission, one of the following culture courses may be substituted for one of the sequential language courses:
