Bando di ammissione a LINGUE E CULTURE EUROPEE (LCE) - Anno Accademico 2024-2025

The course is managed by the Department of Studies on Language and Culture


The degree programme in European Languages and Cultures will give students a broad-based knowledge of at least two foreign languages, along with an improved knowledge of European cultures through a solid and interdisciplinary educational offer. The programme integrates the study of languages and European cultures with law and economics, socio- linguistic and literary skills. These are key to meeting the challenges that Emilia-based businesses and institutions face in an ever-changing international market. For this reason they need professionals with a broad knowledge of foreign languages and a sound cultural training, which will enable them to critically understand the contemporary world.

Programme contents

In addition to the standard subjects, at least two European languages are studied for three years: English is compulsory, and students can choose their second language among French, German, or Spanish. For two years a third language can be chosen among Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Russian, and Spanish. The programme is designed to develop language skills, comprising ability to read, write, analyse, interpret and translate general and specialised texts. From the second year it is possible to choose between two curricula: economic-legal (linguistic mediation for the economy and international commercial enterprise) and linguistic-cultural (linguistic mediation for the cultural industry, cultural tourism, event organisation). A modern teaching approach promotes access to internship experiences and includes several international exchange programmes for students and teachers. A double degree may be issued with this degree, as the result of an agreement between our Department and the Département de Langues Etrangères Appliquées dell'Université Paris Ouest Nanterre

Job opportunities

Graduates can find employment locally and internationally. The thorough linguistic and cultural knowledge and skills developed through the programme prepare graduates for successful employment in Italy and Europe, not only in the field of multilingual communication - as translators, editors and language consultants -, but also in publishing, advertising and tourism. Additionally, the skills and sensitivity acquired will make graduates suitable to work as cultural mediators for multicultural and multilingual companies, institutions and organisations. Also, graduates gain the credits and skills required to enter specialised programmes for future language instructors and teachers. Among other degree programmes, graduates will be able to enrol to Master's Degrees in Languages for Communication in International Enterprises and Organisations, as well as Languages, Cultures, Communication, both provided by the Department.
