Elementary Language Courses

Students who intend to continue a language begun in high school must take the Placement Test to determine the language course in which they should enroll. Italian 102 is NOT open to students who have begun instruction in high school. It is strongly recommended that students who began Italian at another college or university also take the placement test. Beginners desiring to acquire proficiency at a faster pace are encouraged to enroll in Italian 103, followed by 233. Students who choose this option can satisfy the language requirement only if they then receive credit for a more advanced course taught in Italian (235 or higher). Students must check with the Course Coordinator for any exceptions to the Placement Test level.
