The course offers an advanced preparation in the science of language, in both its general and applied domains.
Entirely taught in English and in the respective languages of the language-specific linguistics modules (French, Spanish, German, Russian and Italian), the course represents an authentically international path, with a focus on the European dimension. The training offer is enriched by the presence of foreign guest teachers invited to hold modules as part of an interdepartmental training offer which is strongly oriented to an interdisciplinary approach. Graduates will hold a wide range of useful knowledge for the continuation of their studies in the field of research doctorates and second level masters, and will have the language teaching skills to compete in the selection for access to the qualifying course for teaching Italian as a second language (Competition Class A23).
Graduates will be able to deepen theories and methods of investigation for the scientific study of language in all its manifestations, also for their application in relation to Italian and other European languages, as well as to ancient languages. To achieve these skills, the training offer includes the study of language sciences and a wide choice of philological and literary disciplines, and of psychological, philosophical and statistical-computational disciplines. Seminars and experimental linguistic laboratories are also proposed to support traditional teaching.
The course aims to train graduates with a high level of knowledge of the theories, methodologies and techniques of language investigation and who are able to apply them in various areas of work for research, teaching and counseling in the analysis of written and/or spoken materials. Career opportunities for graduates in linguistics, also projected in international dimension, concern linguistic counselling in several areas, from the drafting and editing of texts to international cooperation activities, to the policies of linguistic integration for immigrants, to the management of plurilingualism and finally to the design and evaluation of IT tools for the treatment of linguistic corpora and of verbal communication.
