Contents

The Course of Study in Theories and Techniques of Interlingual Mediation provides adequate language-cultural knowledge and skills in two foreign languages, in contrastive approach with Italian, and training in the techniques and skills of interlingual mediation.
Languages of study can be chosen from:

  • French
  • English
  • Spanish
  • Russian

Educational activities include lectures, seminars, laboratory exercises, distance learning modules, internships and stay abroad.

In the three-year course, specific translation skills are developed: communicative, extralinguistic, switching, instrumental and professional. In addition, the course provides basic knowledge in geographical, economic and legal disciplines.

All of the language courses thus aim to develop the consolidation and enrichment of oral and written expression, comprehension, mediation and interaction skills in Italian and foreign languages, metalinguistic reflection skills, translation and mediation skills in non-specialized fields.

Each year two language combinations are not allowed due to timetable constraints. Currently, Spanish-German combination is not possible.
