A course with a strong international vocation that teaches students how to communicate with linguistic mastery and a critical spirit of the cultural content of two foreign languages and their civilizations. In a perspective of comparative dialogue and mediation, students will learn not only the daily written and oral use of the two languages but also the knowledge of its literary tradition as well as the historical and socio-cultural contexts of each language. Theoretical and practical skills are enhanced by an in-depth study through specialist and literary translation as well as the teaching of foreign languages. Students can pursue work in the fields of teaching, translation, publishing, cultural mediation, and in general sectors where language skills and international "visions" are required.

Characteristics and objectives
The Master’s Degree in European and American Languages and Literatures
offers an educational project eminently focused on the study of two
foreign languages and cultures. Besides training its students for the
daily use of the two languages of their choice, enhancing both oral
and written skills with professional and cultural specificities, the
Course aims at transmitting a deep knowledge of each respective
literary tradition, with specific attention for the transmission of
competences about the historical and socio-cultural contexts they are
framed into, and a special interest for the development of a
comparative dialogue between them, meant to serve the purpose of
mutual enlightenment and 'mediation’.
A specific interest is also devoted to the theory and practice of
translation (broadly specialized, literary, etc…) and didactics of
foreign languages. Students who aspire at gaining a M. D. in European
and American Languages and Literatures will, therefore, be asked to
prove a high degree of theoretical and practical knowledge of the
languages of their choice, as well as an ability to properly manage
different techniques for analysing and describing literary texts, to
adequately project them in a historical-critical perspective, and to
interpret them with satisfactory autonomy. Also, they will have to
prove their capability of critically communicating complex cultural
contents in both 'curricular’ foreign languages, both in spoken and
written form.

Occupational opportunities
The Course prepares expert professionals specialized in foreign
languages and cultures, who will be able, as such, to carry out
qualified tasks in teaching, translation, publishing and cultural
mediation, as well as, more generally, in any work environment with a
specific international projection.
