16 Hour Courses – Italian Language
This program aims to give the students the possibility to combine a full immersion in Italian language with an in-depth experience of Italian culture. During an academic semester four levels will be covered on condition that students pass a final exam for each course. For every level, credit-bearing students will obtain 4 credits (out of the total 16) on condition that they receive a “C-” or higher. Each level consists of 60 contact hours. All classes are held in Italian. Ample time is also dedicated to activities whose objective is to deepen knowledge of Italian society and culture and enable students to interact directly with local community through interviews, research and fieldtrips.
