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....
