To earn this certificate, students must complete a total of 16 hours by taking each of these courses: ITALIAN 101, 102, 203, and 204. This certificate is designed for non-native speakers of Italian and is offered at the level of attaining a basic expertise and knowledge in Italian language skills and culture.

 No more than 4 hours earned at other institutions may apply towards the certificate and no more than 4 hours may be pass/fail. Courses earned at another institution or by AP credit will be determined by the school regarding course equivalencies and allowance in the certificate. All courses must be earned with a grade of C or better. The University undergraduate certificate fee will apply.


Proficiency Exam Requirement 

 Students who earn this certificate are also required to take an exit proficiency exam at the end of the academic term in which they complete the last course of the certificate. Students must pass the STAMP exam at the intermediate level in order to earn the certificate. This exam requires a fee.
