Italian Studies and Comparative Literature

This course aims to provide you with knowledge and understanding of a variety of literary, cultural and historical texts from a range of periods and backgrounds. Materials both originally written in English and translated into English will be studied for Comparative Literature, while materials in Italian will be the basis for the Italian Studies side (except at early stages of the beginners' pathway). It also gives you the ability to understand native-spoken language within an educated environment and to communicate orally with fluency and accuracy, to read with understanding and critical judgement and to write accurately in your chosen language with an appropriate understanding of register and style. Beyond this, the course also aims to foster an independent approach to formulating problems and arguments, through the development and application of close reading and analytical skills. Individual modules come with the option of an academic placement which complements and develops the learning on a module.
