Why Modern languages and cultures?
To learn and refine not only language and cultural skills, but also skills in economics, sociology, geography, anthropology, tourism, art, and other knowledge required by the current market.
Because you can choose between a more literary curriculum and one geared toward business and tourism.
Because you can participate in seminars, internships, workshops and other activities that train for work, as well as experience studying abroad with Erasmus grants.
Because a good knowledge of foreign languages and cultures promotes success in employment in domestic and international companies and entrepreneurial ventures.
Because the different subjects in the curriculum will enable you to make a more informed choice if you want to continue your studies with a master's degree.
Because you can also follow a curriculum that allows you, at the end of your undergraduate studies, to take the path of language teaching in school.
What will you study
The Bachelor's Degree in Modern Languages and Cultures trains individuals with solid proficiency in two foreign languages who can be employed in a variety of work settings.
The core of the course is theoretical and practical language instruction. After a common first year, students can choose between two curricula:
- Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures
- Modern Languages and Cultures for Business and Tourism .
The curriculum Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures aims to provide a basic preparation in the philological-literary, historical-cultural and historical-artistic fields of the civilization whose language is studied. For this reason, linguistic and literary disciplines relevant to the chosen cultural area, related philologies and historical, historical-philosophical and historical-artistic teachings, as well as the teaching of Comparative Literature have been included in the curriculum.
The curriculum Modern Languages and Cultures for Business and Tourism aims to provide:
- language and cultural knowledge expendable in the tourism professions and the organization of arts and cultural events
- language skills expendable in the professional fields of industry, commerce and the service sector
This is why the curriculum includes, alongside the linguistic and cultural disciplines, sectoral communication analysis, historical-artistic, economic and legal disciplines that provide the graduate with professionalizing skills.
