Handbook

Italian

Year and Campus: 2014
Overview:

Italian language subjects are organised in a progressive sequence (of units) from Italian 1 through to Italian 6 and beyond. Entry and exit points are determined by the student’s background in the language, placement testing if required, prerequisites, or at the discretion of the Italian Program. Students normally progress through the subjects in consecutive order. Mid-year entry is also possible into subjects with even numbers, subject to appropriate prior experience and approval from the head of the Italian program. Accelerated progression is possible on advice from the Italian Program.

Learning Outcomes:

See course objectives.

Structure & Available Subjects:

A 100-point major and 75-point minor sequence is available. The sequence is as follows for the three most common entry points for the Major and Minor:

  • Italian 1 entry point: for students who have little or no knowledge of Italian.
  • Italian 3 entry point: for students who have undertaken four or five years of secondary school Italian (or equivalent).
  • Italian 5 entry point: for students who have completed Year 12 VCE Italian (or equivalent)

Students will have their appropriate entry point determined by the Italian Program, based on evidence of prior learning and/or results of a placement test as required. Please refer to the following link for further information: http://languages-linguistics.unimelb.edu.au/italian/italian-placement-test

Students completing a major in Italian will usually undertake 25 points at level one, 37.5 points at level two and 37.5 points at level three. Students completing a minor will usually undertake 25 points at level one, 25 points at level two and 25 points at level three.
