Introducing MA Italian:
Italy is one of Europe’s most creative and distinctive civilisations with a fascinating history and culture. You will receive a good foundation in both the language and in cultural studies and will spend a year teaching, working or studying in Italy.
The small class sizes and vibrant Italian Society make it easy to get to know teaching staff and other students. The mixture of exchange students and Italian and UK staff creates a stimulating learning environment.
During Year 3, you will spend a minimum of 30 weeks on approved work or study placement in the country/countries relevant to the language/s studied.
Studying a language to degree level, especially when you spend a year abroad as part of your studies, gives you a set of skills and life experiences highly prized by employers. As a graduate of Italian, you will have a remarkable range of career options available to you.
With its long and rich history, including the most UNESCO World Heritage Sites of any nation, Italy continues to thrive as a cultural and scientific powerhouse of the Mediterranean. It is a founding member of the European Union, a member of numerous international institutions including the UN, NATO, and the Council of Europe, and is an advanced economy with the eighth largest nominal GDP in the world.
Our previous graduates have gone into careers as varied as publishing, banking, journalism, teaching, and IT. Some are working for international aid organisations or within the European Commission, the diplomatic service and the United Nations.
There are also opportunities to continue studying, with Year 4 in particular developing the research skills you’ll need if you choose this path. There are many graduate-level programmes available, particularly in the UK, US and of course Italy itself.
