Course List

Italian language course levels are determined by placement tests to ensure the appropriate level. Since language demands are challenging, students may be placed in a level lower than requested. Students are advised to gain pre-approval for several levels of Italian from their home institution in order to ensure that they receive credit for the level they are placed into after the placement test. A minimum enrolment of 10 is required to confirm a course. Semester credits are shown in parentheses.

Please note that not all courses listed will run; in order for a course to be offered, there must be enough interest generated from the preliminary course forms.

Courses may change and new courses may be available.
