Bachelor's degree in Foreign Languages and Literatures



The Bachelor's degree in Foreign Languages and Literatures offers students the possibility to achieve high proficiency in at least two foreign languages (C1). In addition, proficiency in a third foreign language is targeted at B1 level. The programme will focus on the study of literature and linguistics in each of the two major languages. Other core subjects include: Italian literature, History and Geography. There are three areas of specialization within the programme (linguistic-didactic, artistic and literary) allowing the students to acquire specific insight in one of these branches. The Bachelor in Foreign Languages and Literatures prepares students for employment opportunities in the areas of language consultancy (e.g. for Departments of Arts and cultural institutions), translation (e.g. translators of literary texts, translators of multimedia texts) and cultural services (e.g. librarians and archivists). The programme is also targeted at future teacher trainees. Other possible work opportunities include the following: linguists, philologists, professors of literary studies/art history/history/philosophy/pedagogy/psychology, foreign language instructors, and museum employees. 

Degree programme annual factsheet (SUA-CdS)

As part of the Quality Assurance system, complete, updated and easily available information on objectives, study plan, resources used and results achieved for each degree programme is made available through the SUA-CdS - Scheda Unica Annuale del Corso di Studio (Degree programme annual factsheet). This includes an Overview and three public sections (Learning Objectives, Student Experience, Learning Outcomes) which together provide a wide range of information about each degree programme. The SUA-CdS also contains an administrative section (Administration and Quality Management) that is for internal use only.

The Degree programme annual factsheet (SUA-CdS), which is currently available only in Italian, is a valuable tool that can be used by the University to design, implement and reorganise, as well as to evaluate, each degree programme. However, the SUA-CdS factsheet is also useful for students, to help them choose the right programme of study.
