The four-year European Studies degree combines the study of European history, society, politics and ideas with the study of two languages from the following list: French, German, Italian, Russian, Spanish. The Italian course has been devised to combine advanced language skills with coverage of topic areas relevant to modern Italian life and society. Particular attention is paid to listening and speaking skills, so that you can function effectively during the third year of your course, which is spent on the Continent, studying the core areas of European Studies through the foreign language. If you choose Italian as your major language, you will go to the Dipartimento di Studi Politici e Sociali at the university of Pavia, or to the University of Siena.
