Introduction

To study Italian is not only to acquire a language, but also to study a rich literature and many-sided culture which have played an important, and sometimes dominant, role in Western civilization. For Canadians, the Italian contribution bears a special significance: the vast influx of Italians has brought changes in our way of life and a living presence to reinforce traditional Italian influences, thus enriching the meaning of the term Canadian.

Italian combines well with other modern languages and literatures, and other programs such as European Studies, Literary Studies, and Mediaeval and Renaissance Studies, but is by no means restricted to these. The many Minor programs listed in the following pages will guide the student interested in the arts, history, linguistics, cinema, or Italian Canadian studies. The four courses offered in translating and interpreting will help train for a career in this field. Of considerable interest to students who will seek employment in an international job market is the Minor in Italian for Business Purposes.

Italian courses are offered for beginners as well for students with an Italian background. Oral practice is included in all language courses. Students well qualified in the Italian language may be excused from language courses in First Year (please see the Undergraduate Coordinator). 300- and 400-series courses are available to qualified third- and fourth-year students and may be taken concurrently. These courses offer a wide range of options in language, literature and linguistics. Except for specialists and majors, it is not necessary to take language courses in the 300- and 400-series, but language courses may be taken without literature courses. In addition, there are courses in culture, cinema and theatre that have no language requirement.

In conjunction with Woodsworth College, ITA courses may be taken in Italy at the University of Siena during July and August. A number of bursaries are available. Students may apply to take their Third Year in Italy under the Study Elsewhere program.
