Major programs may be organized historically, around a genre (like poetry, drama, or prose fiction), or around a period concept or movement (such as the Enlightenment, baroque, classicism and romanticism, or existentialism). Major programs normally include at least one term of study in Italy.
Major in Italian. Prerequisite for the major: ITAL 8 (Exploring Italian Culture and Language) or ITAL 9 (Italian Culture).
All students wishing to major in Italian must have completed ITAL 8 through the L.S.A +. program in Rome or ITAL 9 on campus. An Italian major consists of eight courses numbered ITAL 10 (Introduction to Italian Literature: Masterworks and Great Issues) or above, at least five of which must be numbered above ITAL 15. The Honors major consists of nine courses, of which one must be ITAL 89 (the thesis). Two of the three courses offered on the Italian L.S.A.+ (ITAL 10 and ITAL 12 (Advanced Writing and Speaking in Italian)) may be counted toward the major and the Honors major. The major must include ITAL 10; at least two courses from the pre-1800 period (ITAL 21 (Early Italian Literature and Culture), ITAL 22 (Humanism and Renaissance), ITAL 23 (Seventeenth and Eighteenth-Century Italian Literature and Culture), ITAL 33, ITAL 34); and at least two courses from the post-1800 period (ITAL 15 (Italian Cinema), ITAL 24 (Nineteenth-Century Italian Literature and Culture), ITAL 25 (Twentieth and Twenty-first Century Italian Literature and Culture), ITAL 35). With the approval of the Italian Major Advisor, ITAL 10 may be counted for credit toward the major twice, provided the course topics are different. During their senior year, as their culminating activity, Italian majors must take either ITAL 88: Senior Independent Reading and Research or an upper-level Italian course (numbered ITAL 21 or above). Students taking an upper-level Italian course as their culminating activity are required to supplement the regular reading with extra materials chosen in consultation with the instructor, and to write a research or critical paper of at least twenty pages. All culminating experiences must include a public presentation. The major card must be approved by the Italian Major Advisor.

All students wishing to minor in Italian must have completed ITAL 8 through the L.S.A + program in Rome or ITAL 9 on campus.

Dartmouth Scholarships are need-based and are given without expectation of repayment. Amounts range from $1,000 to over $50,000, depending on our determination of your eligibility. Some Dartmouth students will be selected as recipients of one or more of our over 750 endowed scholarship funds. These awards are not additional money, but indicate that the aid already awarded will come from a specific endowed fund. No separate application is required. Students who receive scholarships from external sources can use these funds to reduce the loan and/or job portions of their financial aid packages. Veteran's benefits are included as a resource in the determination of eligibility for Dartmouth scholarship awards. Dartmouth College currently participates at 100% in the Yellow Ribbon Program which supplements GI Bill benefits. For U.S. citizens or permanent residents, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the only form required to apply for Federal Financial Aid. The federal government provides Pell Grants to students who qualify on the basis of financial need as determined by their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG) are awarded by the College to the most needy students. They vary in amount but do not exceed $4,000 a year. When you apply for financial aid, your parents' country of residence will determine which documents you need to submit. Parents living outside U.S. and Canada should provide income/benefits statement from employer.
