If you have little or no knowledge of Italian, this degree will allow you to learn the language from scratch and develop an understanding of the history, politics and rich culture of a major European economy. Core modules will develop your language skills and introduce you to Italian history and culture, but you’ll also choose from a wide range of optional modules to explore topics from medieval and Renaissance art and literature to cinema and specialised uses of Italian in business. Our joint honours programmes with Music provide an excellent opportunity to combine your interests in music with another subject. You’ll be able to develop your understanding of music’s role in history and culture, as well as expressing your creativity through composition or showcasing your performance abilities. You’ll combine core and optional modules to develop a good understanding of musical principles and develop specialist knowledge and skills in the aspects of music that suit you.
