The programme combines expertise and skills in the language, literary, and cultural fields gained in the two universities of Modena-Reggio Emilia and Parma. It is intended for students with medium- advanced language skills who are interested in improving them and applying them to cultural activity fields. Main focus is given to the theory and practice of translation, with reference to both literary and publishing texts.

Course content

The programme focuses on two specific areas: first of all foreign languages, in which students are expected to achieve advanced proficiency in both languages studied. In addition to the lectures focusing on intercultural communication, study of linguistic and textual varieties, and translation activities, language teaching is also supported by laboratories run by mother-tongue language teachers. The programme also includes the study of the literature and culture of the two selected languages. Students will also gain specific skills in the field of cultural disciplines, as well as in sociological, linguistic, or literary disciplines.

Career options

Graduates will be able to work in the cultural industry and in cultural institutions, in organisations for the protection and valorisation of the cultural heritage, in services for the management and development of entertainment and cultural events. The programme mainly prepares students to professional activities such as translator, language consultant and expert in cultural institutions or in the entertainment industry, collaborator in the design, dissemination, and valorisation of cultural events and activities. The Degree Programme in Languages, Cultures, Communication enables students to obtain the requirements needed to access the language teaching qualification courses.
