  • Objectives
    The major programs in Italian (42 credits) are designed to give students ample knowledge of the language, spoken and written, as well as a coherent overview of Italian culture, tradition, history and literature. The language courses are intended to develop all the basic language skills: speaking, understanding, reading and writing. All courses above the introductory level are offered exclusively in the respective language. In the language and translation courses students are provided with a sound linguistic basis that will prove advantageous in career areas such as business, government, the travel industry or international organizations. The wide range of literature courses covers all the major areas of Italian literatures and gives students an overview of the major literary periods. Through the study of literature students acquire the ability to undertake a critical approach to the analysis of literary texts, as well as of secondary materials and research literature. These skills enhance students’ ability to read, understand, enjoy and appraise literary and other texts.

    Special features of the Italian program — There are two 3-credit courses (ITAL 253 & 254) that respond to the special linguistic needs of students who are Canadians of Italian origin. By comparing and contrasting idioms, vocabulary and other features of grammar and syntax (interferences), students learn standard Italian.
