Italian Courses (ITAL)
Native speakers of Italian may not obtain credit for 100- or 200-level courses. A native speaker is defined in this context as a person who has spoken Italian since childhood and/or has received sufficient instruction in the language to be literate in it.
A near-native speaker is defined as a person who speaks, writes and understands Italian with few errors and only the occasional non-patterned mistake. The department will assign students with some knowledge of Italian to the appropriate level.
