Italian Class To Be Offered At UJ

University of Jamestown is adding Italian to its foreign language offerings. Students, as well as community members, are welcome to register.

Italian 101 will be offered in the 2019 spring semester, followed by Italian 102 in the fall. Italian 201 will also be held in the spring of 2019 and 2020. Anyone in the community is welcome to register for the Italian 101 class; no previous foreign language experience is required. The class will be held on the University of Jamestown campus on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10 – 10:50 a.m. and is worth three credits.

“Italian is a niche language, one that is strongly associated with art, history, and gastronomy,” said Alexandru Lefter, Assistant Professor of Foreign Language. “It affords students a chance to explore a rich cultural heritage. It is also a good fit for students who have mastered the basics of another Romance language, such as Spanish or French, since it allows students to develop a comparative understanding of Romance linguistics, as well as developing proficiency in the languages.”

For information on how to register for Italian 101, please email admission@uj.edu.

The Department of Foreign Language currently offers majors in French, German, and Spanish, requiring a combination of on-campus coursework and advanced language study in a study abroad program or US-based language immersion program. Minors are also available in French, German, Spanish, and Italian Studies.
