This First Cycle Degree Programme is characterised by a technical approach to the study of languages and to oral and written mediation. The programme includes linguistic-cultural courses, including: liaison interpreting in the two main languages (English and Spanish); elements of international law and business administration. As for linguistic courses, attendance is compulsory.
The degree programme is based on innovative teaching methods, including the use of language and IT laboratories. It also requires students to spend a semester in Spain (tuition fees of programmes abroad will be paid by Ca’ Foscari University, whereas travel, board and accommodation expenses will be paid by the student). Scholarships for graduates will be available in Spain (Tandem Escuela Internacional de Madrid).
First-cycle graduates may work as interpreters, experts of commercial relations with domestic and international markets, translators, tour guides, cultural mediators and linguistic mediators in schools.
Attendance is compulsory for language, general linguistics, liaison interpreting and translation courses.
The educational activities include classroom teaching, workshops and internships, in order to acquire wide-ranging skills that can be readily transferable into the world of work.
Knowledge acquired by students will be assessed through written and oral exams during the entire university career.
The degree exam consists in preparing a paper/thesis, evaluated according to methods similar to those of written exams but not in the presence of the student. The supervisor may require an oral discussion of the paper/thesis, in case he/she considers it to be necessary.
