Italian Language Placement

Students who have taken Italian before college and plan to continue at Hopkins must take the departmental placement exam before registering for an Italian class. This exam is available online year-round; for the most accurate placement recommendation, take it just before the semester you actually plan to study the language.

If you have successfully taken the pre-requisite courses for the class, you do not need to take the placement test.

If you have little or no previous exposure to Italian, register for Italian Elements 1 (210.151); you do not need to take the placement test.

Italian Placement Exam

In order to place into an Italian course, please contact Dr. Alessandro Zannirato, Italian Language Program Director ([email protected]), to schedule a placement test.
