School of Languages and Literatures, College of Arts
Note: admission, including internal or external transfer, to the Italian minor has been suspended. For more information, please contact the School of Languages and Literatures.
All language courses carry 0.50 credits. Students with Year 4 or grade 12 Italian or their equivalent may be admitted into ITAL*1060 Introductory Italian I or ITAL*1070 Introductory Italian II only with the approval of the department. Students advancing in a Romance language (French, Spanish, Italian) are advised to take elective courses in a second Romance language and in Latin. All language students are strongly advised to include CLAS*1000 Introduction to Classical Culture and LING*1000 Introduction to Linguistics among their electives in order to derive the maximum benefit from their studies. Except where stated otherwise, literary texts are, at all levels, studied in the original language. Students registering in these courses will be expected to have the appropriate knowledge.
Italian may be taken as a minor in the honours program. Students in Italian will be counselled by the School of Languages and Literatures.
The School of Languages and Literatures encourages students in modern languages to spend 1 or 2 semesters in another country to study a particular language at the university level. Credit for programs of study successfully completed may be applied towards the University of Guelph degree requirements. Requests should be addressed well in advance to either the School or a particular section of the School. A letter of permission is required (see Chapter VIII--Undergraduate Degree Regulations and Procedures.)
The Italian minor is currently suspended. For more information, please contact the School of Languages and Literatures.
