In literature and film, history and politics, business and the arts, Italy has long been among the most important and influential countries in Europe.
A degree in Italian Studies will allow you to learn more about this country by studying its language in the context of its fascinating culture and history, and will allow you to study or work in Italy. Italian Studies at Reading attracts students of many different nationalities, ages and educational backgrounds. They are mostly drawn by our focused and intensive approach to language learning and the opportunity to study a wide range of optional culture topics with experts from different disciplines, including literature, film and linguistics, within a friendly, professional environment.
You can also study Italian in combination with another language. German and Spanish can be studied from beginner's level and French from intermediate level (see specific course entry requirements for more details). Learning two languages at university will give you an even broader knowledge, as well as further enhance your career prospects.
