The aim of the course is to develop a set of high-level methodological and theoretical-scientific skills in one or two European languages and literatures, considering their evolution and forms of expression in both their original areas and in those of more recent expansion. The course leaves a wide margin for personalization and allows students to build a coherent study plan, combining foreign languages and literatures with other fields of Humanities. Depending on the approach chosen and the subject of the Master's dissertation, students will be able to organize their study plan according to specific perspectives, such as: linguistics and philology; literature and comparative studies; the historical, geographical and philosophical areas; the field of communication, editorial activity and artistic expression; anthropology, psychology and pedagogy, fields especially useful to acquire the requested credits for the training of future secondary teachers.
Graduates in European and extra-european languages and literatures develop a wealth of competences and skills that allow them to work, even with a high level of responsibility, in a variety of professional fields, especially those requiring written and oral command of foreign languages accompanied by a solid preparation in humanities.
The main employment opportunities for graduates in European and extraeuropean foreign languages and literatures are:
- translation, linguistic assessment and text editing and revising
- translators or editors in publishing houses, including multimedia publications
- translation and localization agencies for websites and web portals
- private companies, particularly in the areas of relations with multinationals, chambers of commerce and foreign companies, business intelligence and human resources management
- management services related to fairs, events, congresses, exhibition centres and cultural events
- relations with foreign cultural institutions and non-governmental organizations
- public administration offices operating in cultural contexts and in contact with similar bodies
- communication and marketing offices of private companies and public administration, especially in fields requiring the use of foreign languages
- continuation of studies with the third level of university education (Doctorate) or with a second level vocational master
- courses for secondary education teaching (if in possession of credits in appropriate groups of disciplinary fields, as stated by current legislation).
Employment statistics (Almalaurea)

All first-level graduates or holders of an equivalent foreign degree are admitted to the M.A. programme in European and extra-European languages and literatures, provided that they meet minimum credit requirements, possess adequate language skills, and have appropriate competences in literature studies. Native speakers of a language other than Italian shall demonstrate an adequate competence in Italian language.
Applications will be assessed thoroughly before allowing admission to the M.A. programme; if necessary, the admission committee will arrange an interview to check the possession of credit requirements and to ascertain candidate’s competences, especially in one or more of the following conditions: any B.A. graduate with a final grade under 90/110; graduates with a degree earned more than 10 years before 31 December of the relevant Academic Year; graduates who have taken exams in a language or literature for which they are soliciting admission more than 10 years before the relevant Academic Year; candidates with a foreign degree in a programme with a significantly different study plan and strucutre if compared to the Italian academic system. The admission committee will invite the candidates offering a few dates for meeting, in agreement with the Faculty of Humanities; no show will be considered a renounce to complete the admission process; where appropriate, interviews may also be scheduled on some webconferencing platform. Failure to meet minimum requirements or an unsuccessful interview will prevent candidates from completing the enrolment process, even if transferring from other M.A. programmes of the same field. Candidates might fill any requirement by enrolling in single courses, following the instructions of the admission committee. Only after meeting all minimum requirements, in compliance with the deadlines set out every year, applications will be revised and candidates will be admitted to the M.A. programme.
The admission committee may also consider studying, teaching and professional experience in which competences and skills acquired in older education have been maintained or strengthened, and may derogate from the general criteria if candidates can prove an adequate level of preparation, even if they have previous non-standard education paths or careers. Therefore, after a careful assessment of the application, the admission committee may decide to admit a candidate even in partial derogation from the minimum requirements (as per Decree 386, 26 July 2007, Annex 1, point 3.e, where it is envisaged to allow admission "to graduates with a high level of preparation earned also in education careers that are not perfectly consistent with the entry requirements").

Minimum requirements are the following:

at least 6 ECTS in Glottology or Linguistics (L-LIN/01)
at least 18 + 18 ECTS in two different languages (minimum 2 academic years of study each)
at least 12 + 12 ECTS in the two corresponding literatures (minimum 2 academic years of study each)
"Language" and "Literature" courses are intended as different academic years, not as iteration of the same year. Any other course in the same academic fields (e.g., “History of XY Language”, or “XY Theatre”) will not be counted against the minimum requirements.

The two language and literature courses must be included in the list below. A candidate who has studied only one of the languages and literatures listed below in the B.A. programme, may be admitted as an exception to the general rule, only provided that he/she has earned at least 12 + 12 ECTS in a different language and literature, and 18 ECTS in one or more of the following academic areas: L-FIL-LET/09-10-11-12-14-15, M-STO/01-02-03-04, SPS/05-13, or in their correspondent field in foreign academic systems. In this case, the admission committee will grant access to the M.A. programme only for the language and literature included in the list below.

The Master programme in European and extraeuropean languages and literatures has always been characterized by its strong international vocation, in. The programme can boast a significant number of mobility agreements for students which is constantly increasing.
As part of the Erasmus + programme, a high number of scholarships are made available each year for study periods of a semester to an entire academic year, in agreement with many partner universities located in different European countries. Other opportunities are offered, such as Traineeship programme (working periods abroad) and joint degrees (Avignon and Mainz universities, at the moment). Bilateral agreements and conventions are also currently running with important universities in Russia and Latin America to promote student mobility outside the European Union, and more agreements are active with universities located in Canada, India and the United States.
During the abroad stay, students attend courses that are compatible with those they would have attended in their home University in Milan, following a training project designed with a tutor in the months preceding their departure, and culminating in the draft of a study contract (the Learning Agreement). Coordination with the tutors (one or more for each language area) ensures expert support and guidance throughout the process, as well as full validation of the credits acquired abroad. In addition, the abroad stay can be extremely helpful in carrying out the final project research and writing the dissertation.
The experience of university and daily life in the country of one of the elected languages and literatures represents a unique opportunity for students to improve their linguistic competence. A study abroad stay is also a period of personal and relational growth, as well as of cultural, historical and artistic advancement, which favors mutual comprehension and the integration in the complex contemporary society.
The course programme provides substantial support to interested students through specialised manuals on partner Universities and their locations, and through an orientation and tutoring service, which can be accessed in person or via email. The service is aimed at assisting in fulfilling the application, in the drafting of the Learning Agreement and in the preparation of administrative documents. For all details, please refer to the page http://www.lingue.unimi.it/ecm/home/didattica/erasmus-mobilita-internaz….

Given the characteristics of the majority of courses, attendance is highly recommended, although not mandatory, for all courses and language classes. In a few cases, attendance is mandatory to accrue credits. As a general rule, every course states if attendance is mandatory in its syllabus (https://www.unimi.it/it/corsi/corsi-di-laurea/lingue-e-letterature-straniere).

M.A. Degree Examination 30 0 Italian Undefined
As a general rule, the examinations are to be taken in no particular order, and students have considerable independence. The exams listed below must necessarily be taken in a specific order, under penalty of cancellation of those taken irregularly by the University Administration.

- General Linguistics must be taken before Interlinguistics
- Foreign language exams: all the exams of the first year (indicated as "LM1") are preparatory to those of the second (indicated as "LM2"); therefore, before taking a second year Language exam, it is necessary to have taken and registered the first year exam of that same Language.
