If you have A level Italian or equivalent, Italian A will allow you to become fluent in a major European language while exploring Italy’s fascinating history and rich culture. Core modules will develop your language skills and introduce you to Italian cinema, art, literature or history. But you’ll also choose from an array of optional modules that reflect our diverse research interests, from Dante and Renaissance art to the writings of Italo Calvino, or specialised uses of Italian in business. Politics allows you an in-depth understanding of the institutions and practices of modern political systems, as well as the theories that underpin them and the ways in which they shape, and are shaped by, society. A combination of core and optional modules will give you a firm grounding in political ideas, challenges and institutions around the world, while allowing you to develop specialist knowledge in areas that suit your interests.
