Overview

This Language Sciences programme offers you an advanced command of one of a range of foreign languages, including Albanian, Arabic, Czech, English, French, German, Italian Sign Language (LIS, including tactile sign language), modern Greek, Polish, Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbo-Croatian and Spanish.

Depending on the curriculum you choose, you focus on a different area of study by applying an in depth comparative approach: themes and teaching tools for teaching Italian to foreigners and foreign languages to Italians; advanced research tools for the analysis of language disorders and linguistic acquisition in case of deafness and bilingualism; the formal analysis of language; new technologies for the study of languages and linguistics; and culture and literature in the different phases of their development and the historical diachronic evolution of your focal language.

The modules are taught in multiple languages, including your chosen language of specialisation and English. You can also strengthen your expertise in specific areas of language studies, such as the teaching of foreign languages and Italian as a foreign language, the psychology of development and learning applied to language, computer science and information processing systems in language processing, linguistic analysis of speech and deafness disorders, the most advanced linguistic theories and the study of competence and processing in typical and atypical situations (eye tracking).
