At the College of Marin we are here to help you feel comfortable in reading, writing and speaking in Italian. We offer all different levels, from beginner with Italian 101 to advanced with Italian 226. You can take an Italian class if you are intending to transfer to a four year College or University, or if you are pursuing your Associate Degree, or just for your personal enrichment.
"A man who has not been in Italy is always conscious of an inferiority, from his not having seen what it is expected a man should see"
- Samuel Johnson, British writer and poet
Students planning to transfer to a four-year institution should complete the lower division major requirements and general education pattern for the appropriate transfer institution and major. Exact major requirements for UC and CSU institutions can be found on www.assist.org. Please see a counselor for more information as curriculum requirements may vary among transfer universities.
Policy Statement Regarding Sequence of Enrollment in Modern Language Classes: Although students are advised to enroll in language courses sequentially, they will not be precluded from enrolling in lower level language classes after completion of more advanced courses. Students should be aware, however, that units resulting from the lower level courses may not be accepted at transfer institutions as a part of the required transferring units.
