First Year Seminars

The 199Y1 and 199H1 seminars are designed to provide the opportunity to work closely with an instructor in a class of no more than twenty-four students. These interactive seminars are intended to stimulate the students’ curiosity and provide an opportunity to get to know a member of the professorial staff in a seminar environment during the first year of study.


Guidelines for the selection of first-year language courses

ITA152Y1: for students who have completed OAC/4U Italian at the high school level (or equivalent).

ITA101Y1: for students who have some passive knowledge of Italian (or an Italian dialect) or some secondary school training in Italian (but not at the senior level OAC/4U).

ITA100Y1: for students who have neither passive knowledge nor any secondary school training in Italian.

ITA102Y1: an introductory language course for students wishing to take Italian solely as a breadth requirement. This course cannot be used towards any Minor, Major or Specialist program in Italian.

Students with an adequate knowledge of Italian may substitute for the language courses and half-courses in the First and Second years another course or half-course, subject to the permission of the Department. The Department reserves the right to place students in the language course appropriate to their level of language skill.
