In the Master’s Programme in Linguistics with a specialisation in Italian you will deepen your knowledge of linguistics and your skills in the Italian language. You will choose the area and courses for your linguistic specialisation, connected to the Department’s actual, ongoing research: second/third language acquisition, lexicography or linguistic history. In addition, you will take the faculty-wide courses which are obligatory in the Linguistics programme. You will also train your academic language skills in Italian in both speech and in writing. A central module is represented by an independent research project within the area of your specialization, in the form of one or two essays.
