Welcome to the Department of Italian & French Studies

BENVENUTE E BENVENUTI! BIENVENUE!

 

Our Italian and French Studies department offers award-winning teaching and one-on-one mentoring. We are dedicated to helping our students learn a second (or third!) language, and to introducing them to the richness of Italian and Francophone cultures.

 

Our Italian courses, which include beginner and intermediate level language courses, and an appealing array of literature and culture courses taught in English, may be taken either as electives or towards earning an Italian Studies Minor.

 

Our French students may pursue any of the major or minor programs offered by the University of Waterloo, and may be eligible for opportunities to study in Quebec (Chicoutimi)) or France.

 

Students who have earned, or plan to earn, two consecutive language credits --  for example ITAL101 and 102, or FR192A and 192B -- may consider pursuing the Global Experience program.

 

Course Sequencing
Language students must be careful to take courses in order. It is not permitted to ‘backtrack’ and take courses out of sequence. For example, ITAL 101 may NOT be taken after ITAL102, and FR192B may NOT be taken after FR251. 
 
If you are unsure what level of course is appropriate for you, please contact us for more information. Grazie & Merci!
