Italian Program

The Italian program at West Chester offers a minor at the undergraduate level.

The Italian language minor consists of 6 courses in the language. You can start your minor with ITA 101 or higher, for a total of 6 courses, taken in consultation with the program advisor. Additionally, you can transfer in up to 50% of the courses for the Italian minor.

Course Offerings:

Language courses offered each semester include first year (ITA 101-102), and second year (ITA 201-202).
After ITA 202 students can take ITA 301 (W) (typically offered in the Spring) and ITA 302 (typically offered in the Fall) in the order they prefer (the only requisite for both ITA 301 and ITA 302 is ITA 202).
