General and specific aims of the course

The aim of the European and Extra-European Languages and Literatures programme is to provide its graduates with advanced methodological and theoretical competences in one or two European-origin languages and literatures, i.e. those of both European and extra-European countries where those languages are spoken.

This programme, although based on a single curriculum, allows students to organize their syllabus following precise and coherent educational lines, focusing on a choice of specific subjects: philology, language and linguistics, literatures, comparative literature and translation studies.

The knowledge and competences acquired by European and Extra-European Languages and Literatures graduates will allow them to work, even in important positions, in contexts where one or more foreign languages are required, as well as the advanced knowledge of literatures and a strong background in the humanities.

In particular, they may be employed as high-level translators, linguists, or text editors/proofreaders. The graduate degree programme in European and Extra-European Languages and Literatures will be designed so as to allow access to the "45/A Lingua straniera (Foreign Languages)" and "46/A Lingue e civiltà straniere (Foreign Languages and Cultures)" teaching curricula (the relevant legislation is currently being drafted by the Ministry of University.

These curricula, which are also being developed by the Ministry of University, will grant access to a teaching career in secondary and lower-secondary schools.

Employment statistics

All first-level graduates or holders of an equivalent foreign degree are admitted to the Master's degree programme in European and non-European languages and literatures, provided that they meet minimum CFU credit requirements and prove adequate language skills and training in the literary field. Native speakers of a language other than Italian shall demonstrate strong Italian skills.
You will be assessed for curricular requirements according to the procedures specified in the programme regulations. If you meet the minimum curricular requirements, you will be invited to an interview to ascertain your skills.
If you do not meet minimum requirements or do not pass the interview, you will not be able to enrol, even if transferring from other Master's degree programmes (class LM-37 or other classes). You may fill any requirement gaps by enrolling onto individual courses, as instructed by the Commission. Only after meeting all minimum requirements, in compliance with the deadlines set out every year, will you be admitted to the degree programme.
Please find below minimum requirements:

  • at least 6 CFUs in Glottology or Linguistics (L-LIN/01)
  • at least 18 + 18 CFUs (in at least 2 years each) in two different languages
  • at least 12 + 12 CFUs (in at least 2 years) in the two corresponding literatures

By languages and literatures we mean "Language" and "Literature" progressive courses that are divided into years and not iterated. We do not mean any other courses belonging to the same academic fields.

The two language and literature courses must be included in the list below. If you have studied only one of the languages and literatures listed below in the three-year programme, you may be admitted in exceptional circumstances, provided that you have further earned at least 12 + 12 CFUs in a different language and literature, and 18 CFUs in the following academic fields: L-FIL-LET/09-10-11-12-14-15, M-STO/01-02-03-04, SPS/05-13. In this case, you will be admitted to the degree programme, but you will be required to continue your studies in the language and literature featuring in the list.

Moreover, the Academic Board may partially waive the above requirements and admit highly skilled first-level graduates, after carefully assessing their curriculum (as per Ministerial Decree no. 386 of 26 July 2007, Annex 1, art. 3.e).

The Master's Degree Programme in European and non-European Languages and Literatures has a strong international focus, including Europe as well as other continents, particularly the Americas, Africa and some regions of Asia.

There is a wide range of mobility opportunities. Numerous Erasmus+ scholarships are available for students (in some cases for master's students only) to spend one semester or an entire academic year at dozens of partner universities throughout Europe. Other options include placement (paid internships abroad) and double degree agreements (currently with the University of Avignon and the University of Mainz). We also have bilateral agreements with important universities in Russia and Latin America, to encourage student mobility outside the European Union.

Over the years we have built a strong relationship network allowing our students to complete part of their academic career in world-class European institutions, such as the Sorbonne in Paris, the University College London, the Freie Universität of Berlin, the Complutense of Madrid, or ancient universities such as Cambridge, Salamanca, Heidelberg, Uppsala, Coimbra, Krakow, Louvain, just to name a few. We also have prestigious partners in Russia, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Colombia and Chile.

During the period abroad, students will follow courses that substantially correspond to those provided by our University, according to a training project defined prior to departure through a Learning Agreement. Several coordinators (one or more for each language area) ensure expert support and guidance, as well as full recognition of credits earned abroad. Moreover, this is an excellent opportunity for students to do research for and write their Master's Degree thesis.

60 CFU sono attribuiti alle attività caratterizzanti (tipologia B), 18 alle attività affini e integrative (tipologia C), 9 alle attività a scelta libera (tipologia E), 3 alle altre attività formative (tipologia F), e 30 alla prova finale (tipologia D).
Lo studente potrà scegliere tra la specializzazione in due aree linguistico-letterarie oppure in una sola area. Nel primo caso (percorso bilingue) destinerà 48 dei 60 crediti caratterizzanti in parti uguali a ciascuna delle due aree scelte; in entrambe le aree dovrà obbligatoriamente acquisire 9 CFU nel relativo esame di lingua, destinando i rimanenti a esami di carattere o prevalentemente letterario o prevalentemente linguistico a seconda dei propri interessi. Nel secondo caso (percorso monolingue) destinerà 48 dei 60 CFU caratterizzanti all'approfondimento di un'unica area linguistico-letteraria; anche in questo caso almeno 9 CFU dovranno essere acquisiti nell'esame di lingua.
La scelta della o delle lingue di specializzazione deve basarsi necessariamente su quelle per le quali lo studente possiede i requisiti minimi per l'accesso.
b - ATTIVITÀ CARATTERIZZANTI (60 CFU)
Lo studente dovrà acquisire 48 CFU nell'ambito delle "Lingue e letterature moderne" distribuiti su sei insegnamenti, di cui quattro da 9 CFU e due da 6 CFU, secondo questo schema:

Percorso MONOLINGUE
- 9 CFU nella prima annualità della lingua di specializzazione
- 39 CFU in 5 insegnamenti (tre da 9 CFU e due da 6 CFU) scelti all'interno dell'area linguistico-letteraria di riferimento della lingua di specializzazione

Percorso BILINGUE

e - ATTIVITÀ A SCELTA LIBERA (9 CFU)
Lo studente ha a disposizione 9 CFU a scelta libera, che possono essere destinati a un qualsiasi insegnamento offerto dall'Ateneo, sia nei Corsi di Laurea che in quelli di Laurea Magistrale, fermo restando il limite massimo di 18 CFU per ogni insegnamento.
Rientra nella facoltà dello studente disporre dei 9 CFU per incrementare il suo impegno in insegnamenti già previsti nel piano di studio, portandoli da 6 a 9 per insegnamento.

I 9 CFU a scelta libera potranno dunque essere impiegati in questo modo:
- 1 solo insegnamento da 9 CFU: in questo caso gli insegnamenti da 6 CFU scelti tra le discipline caratterizzanti o affini rimarranno da 6 CFU e il numero totale di esami da sostenere sarà di 12
- 1 solo insegnamento da 6 CFU: in questo caso i restanti 3 CFU dovranno essere utilizzati per portare a 9 CFU uno degli esami scelti tra le discipline caratterizzanti o affini e il numero totale degli esami da sostenere sarà di 12
- nessun insegnamento: in questo caso i crediti dovranno essere necessariamente utilizzati per portare a 9 CFU tre degli esami scelti tra le discipline caratterizzanti o affini e il numero totale degli esami da sostenere sarà di 11

Pur essendo possibile destinare i CFU a scelta libera a qualsiasi esame offerto dall'Ateneo, si raccomanda di mantenere la coerenza con il progetto formativo del Corso di Studio in Lingue e letterature europee ed extraeuropee.
f - ULTERIORI ATTIVITÀ FORMATIVE (3 CFU)

b) ulteriori conoscenze negli ambiti delle lingue e letterature di specializzazione, acquisite mediante la frequenza all'estero di corsi di lingua, letteratura o cultura di livello adeguato, con attestato di frequenza, oppure corsi di lingue diverse da quelle di specializzazione, opportunamente attestati;
c) stages, tirocini o altre esperienze in ambienti di lavoro;
d) avanzate competenze in ambito informatico opportunamente attestate.
Per maggiori informazioni, si rimanda alla pagina http://www.lingue.unimi.it/ecm/home/didattica/info-lingue/laboratori-attivita-sostitutive-3-cfu.

L'adeguatezza e coerenza delle attività dei punti b), c) e d) con il progetto formativo del Corso di Studio sarà stabilita da un'apposita Commissione interna al Collegio Didattico, che decreterà l'eventuale convalida di tali attività.
c - Percorso MONOLINGUE: 39 CFU in tre esami da 9 CFU e due da 6 CFU
Percorso BILINGUE: 30 CFU in due esami da 9 CFU e due da 6 CFU

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.
