2005-2006 University of Guelph Undergraduate Calendar

X. Degree Programs

Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

Italian (ITAL)

School of Languages and Literatures, College of Arts.

All language courses carry 0.50 credit. Students with Year 4 or OAC Italian or their equivalent may be admitted into ITAL*1060 or ITAL*1070 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 and LING*1000 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.

Study Abroad

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 Section VIII--Undergraduate Degree Regulations and Procedures.)

Italian may be taken as a minor in the honours program. Students in Italian will be counselled by the School of Languages and Literatures.
