Course summary

One of Europe’s most creative and distinctive civilisations, Italy has a fascinating and influential history. This programme enables you to study Italian in the context of Italian culture, past and present, alongside issues such as the morality of political action, the limits of freedom and justice, and the processes of governance at various levels within politics. You do not need to have studied Italian previously to take our programme. Intensive language tuition, and a year spent studying or working in Italy, will teach you how to read, write and speak the language to a high standard, including in translation. The politics side of the programme focuses on a variety of issues in politics, political theory, public theory and international relations in Europe, Russia, Africa and the US. It aims to equip you with substantive knowledge of a range of political systems, institutions, processes and ideas. This will enable you to develop and apply your knowledge and skills to the understanding and evaluation of political issues and problems in the contemporary world. From the University’s own Italian Society to the Italian Cultural Institute, you will find many places in Edinburgh to indulge your interest in one of the world’s great cultures. A capital and festival city, Edinburgh is the seat of the Scottish Parliament and has an Italian consulate.
