The study of Italian Language and Culture will open your eyes to the achievements of one of the world’s greatest civilisations. Italy is famous, among other things, for art and architecture, engineers, scientists and poets, for its films, fashion houses, footballers and food. You can study all of these and more at Strathclyde. As a student of Italian you will achieve a mastery of the written and spoken language, have the stimulating challenge of engaging with another culture through the medium of its language, and the opportunity to work or study in Italy during your course. Languages are taught in a friendly atmosphere, in which each student receives the personal attention he or she needs.
We place an emphasis on high-level professional and transferable skills, such as making presentations, writing reports, interpreting and translating, all of which will help to prepare students for a wide range of future careers.
Italian can also be studied within the BA (Honours) in International Business and Modern Languages offered by the Strathclyde Business School
