The MLitt in Italian Studies offers students the opportunity to further their studies in a wide range of areas of Italian literature, culture and history. Students can bring training in theory and research methodologies to bear on directed study of topics which reflect their own research interests. Staff research specialisms include modern and contemporary literature and film, 20th-century poetry, Renaissance literature and culture, Dante studies, postcolonial studies, Italian humanism and transnational modern languages.
Italian studies may be taken as a single-subject pathway within the MLitt, or you can combine it with one of five other pathways:
- French studies
- German studies
- Middle Eastern literary and cultural studies (Arabic and Persian)
- Russian studies
- Spanish and Latin American studies.
2:1 Honours degree in Italian with an Italian language proficiency at C1 level on the European Framework or equivalent. Secondary pathway subjects cannot be taken at beginner's level.
