Department of Italian

STUDY OF ITALIAN LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE AND STUDY OF ITALIAN LANGUAGE AND CULTURE

The study programmes of the Department of Italian Studies are conducted at an undergraduate and graduate level as single and double major studies.

The double major undergraduate study of Italian Language and Literature can be combined with the following studies: Archaeology, Croatian Language and Literature, English Language and Literature, Japanese Language and Culture, Latin Language and Roman Literature and History. During the study we prepare experts to work in the fields of teaching, science, publishing, media, culture, tourism and international organizations and translation. We offer work in smaller groups and dedicate ourselves to each student individually.

During the triennial undergraduate study, students use an interdisciplinary and multimedia approach in order to get acquainted with various theoretical disciplines and the history of the Italian language and literature as well as linguistically standard levels and norms. Students master the skills of written and spoken expression in the Italian language, information management skills, usage of linguistic technologies, they have the option to work in teams and the ability to apply theory to practice. After the triennial study, Italian Language and Literature bachelors can conduct business that requires oral and/or written communication in the Italian language, translate texts from Italian to Croatian and vice versa, write correctly different texts of general use in the Italian language, proofread texts, publicly speak and perform while using the Italian language.

Italian Language and Culture works in combination with the Culture and Tourism study (which is offered by the Faculty of Economics and Tourism). Culture and Tourism – Italian Language and Culture bachelors can develop intercultural projects, affect the strengthening of the tourist and culture sector, conduct business in the interdisciplinary field of culture and tourism, with an emphasis on the understanding of Italian cultural heritage and language.

During the biennial graduate study of Italian Language and Literature, students deepen their knowledge about the Italian language, culture and literature through an interdisciplinary and multimedia approach. We prepare students for theoretical and analytical criticism of content and scientific work. We develop skills of written and spoken expression in the Italian language in different contexts of communication. Aside from developing communication competences in the Italian language, the emphasis is also on the development of intercultural and translation competences while adjusting to the needs of the labour market and the latest trends in the language industry. Including students in various projects and activities through extracurricular activities creates the chance to apply theory to practice, and outdoor lessons enable direct contact with the tangible and intangible cultural heritage of Italy. Students of the graduate study also have the possibility to acquire a Double Degree, one from their home university, and the other from the prestigious graduate study of the Italian university – Università per Stranieri di Perugia (University for Foreigners of Perugia). After the graduate study of Italian Language and Literature, masters can teach Italian language as a native tongue and/or a foreign language in primary and secondary schools, polytechnics, colleges and foreign language schools (by choosing the Teaching Module), work in translation agencies, media, culture, tourism and international organizations, or similar organizations that require a high level of intercultural communication competences, or they continue their career on postgraduate or specialist studies.
