37 Master's Programs in Languages 2020

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

Students taking a Master in Languages will be able to demonstrate main concepts in a range of linguistic disciplines while developing expertise in linguistics procedures. In addition to language development, students will take an interdisciplinary approach which requires critical thinking.

OVERVIEW

The Master’s Degree in Comparative European and Non-European Languages and Literatures (LM 37) aims to provide students with a high level of academic education - primarily from a comparative perspective - in the languages and literatures of French, English, Russian, Spanish and German. Moreover, students will have the opportunity to focus on the extra-European variants of these languages and cultures (in the Euro-Mediterranean, Euro-American, and postcolonial areas). The programme is therefore meant to be open to the world, offering an international perspective on education, research, and cultural entrepreneurship.

In this view, starting from the academic year 2017/2018 the programme has considerably enhanced its international profile by providing all teaching in English, except for the specific language and literary modules taught in the relevant languages. Given its international nature, this programme is particularly suitable for non-Italian speaking students. In addition to specific foreign languages and literatures modules, this programme also focuses on various humanistic areas, such as philology, linguistics, literature, and comparative studies....
