The Department of Italian Studies offers language instruction at all levels, from beginning through advanced. Beginning courses emphasize oral proficiency and communication in real-life situations, as well as reading and writing skills. Materials are closely related to contemporary Italian culture and society. Advanced courses emphasize all aspects of language ability, from conversation to literary analysis.
If you had some previous coursework in Italian at another college, are a heritage speaker, or have learned Italian through travel or independent study, you should take our placement test.
You must pre-register for the placement test at this link.
