We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Italian Literature & Language equip postgraduates with the skills to critically analyse the history, development and usage of the Italian language, as well as its representation and interpretation in Italian literature.
Related subjects include Italian Studies and Modern European Literature. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Cultural Studies or Languages and Literature.
The Languages and Literatures of Italy span a large geographical area, which includes regions of Europe, Latin America and Africa. As such, there are rich lingual and literary traditions to be explored.
For example, you could research the origins of the Italian language, tracing its Indo-European beginnings and following its morphology and relationship with other Romance languages.
Or you might train in the skills of translation of Italian into other languages, and the importance of interpretation and meaning across Italian translations of different literatures.
Careers in Italian Literature & Language may include creative writing and publishing, academia, media and journalism, or related roles such as marketing and public relations, popular writing and digital content creation, or foreign language teaching.
