This subject is taught by the School of Languages and Cultures.
Italian is a language that evokes music and literature, art and cinema and world-famous cuisine. Beautiful and expressive, it is the language of the poetry of Dante, of high fashion and of classical opera. Modern Italy is one of the leading international economies and a founding member of the European Union.
At Victoria our programme in Italian is designed to give you a broad, supportive introduction to speaking, reading, writing and understanding the language. You will learn basic grammar, how to hold a conversation and some simple composition. After building on that foundation, later in your degree you will be ready to study more about Italy and the Italian language through fiction and drama, poetry and film.
Italian major requirements
- ITAL 114 (beginners' level) and 115
- ITAL 215 and 216 and 20 further points from ITAL 200-299
- ITAL 315 and 316 and 20 further points from ITAL 300-399
