Foreign Languages, Literatures and Cultures

The Department of Foreign Languages, Literatures and Cultures gathers the tradition of linguistic, literary and philological studies of the Faculty of Humanities to create a homogeneous unit, articulated in research projects and curricular paths. Plurality in the methodological, theoretical and applied fields as well as a firm devotion to innovation and development constitute its founding principles, also in relation to similar sectors and study areas.

The scientific and didactic project is part of an international dimension that enhances education, research and communication of scientific production, draws on new methodologies, encourages cross-disciplinary exchanges and collaborations. The high affinity among disciplinary sectors ensures a clear and strong presence of the project on the territory, thus satisfying the educational demands in foreign languages and literature, teaching, as well as in linguistic and cultural mediation.

The Department also holds an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree "European Master in Lexicography (EMLex)" within the Master's Degree "Modern Languages for International Communication". The EMLex course focuses in an International and interdisciplinary education in the field of Lexicography connecting students from all over the world. By the end of the studies, students will have acquired appropriate abilities to perform various professions and types of work in consultancy, design in the publishing sector of lexicography and in research.
