The undergraduate programme in Language Mediation and Intercultural Communication (applied to economics, law and society) aims to train language mediators who possess solid language skills - combined with a sound knowledge of cultural studies and of the principles of economics, law, and sociology - and who are therefore capable of providing inter-linguistic services in a variety of contexts, ranging from public and private institutions, to schools and vocational training centres, to companies and other organizations in which language mediation and intercultural communication are of paramount importance.
Graduates from the degree programme in Language Mediation and Intercultural Communication (applied to economics, law and society) will find career opportunities in all areas involving international relations, both at the interpersonal level and in corporate contexts (foreign relations, import/export departments, employment in the foreign offices of Italian companies, or in the offices of foreign companies in Italy), public services, and tourism and related sectors of the hospitality industry. Further opportunities are available in document search activities - both at national and at international level -, drafting memos, reports, minutes and other types of correspondence in a foreign language as well as Italian. The publishing sector also offers career prospects, ranging from the translation of texts in the domains of economics, law, sociology or cultural studies, to tourism, art publishing and journalism in general. Careers prospects exist wherever language mediation and intercultural communication activities occur in both the corporate sphere and public institutions. Additional employment opportunities are provided by partnership initiatives within the framework of international bodies and organisations, and by involvement in national and/or international projects (both at a European and at a supra-European level) requiring solid linguistic and cultural skills alongside a firm grasp of the principles of economics, sociology or law.

Lingue e Culture
Lo studente sceglierà al primo anno due Lingue e le relative Culture, che seguirà per l'intero triennio.
I curricula "Attività internazionali e multiculturali" e "Attività linguistiche interculturali" prevedono tre annualità (I, II e III) di due lingue straniere e due annualità (I e II) delle loro relative culture. Il curriculum "Lingua e cultura italiana per mediatori linguistici stranieri" prevede lo studio obbligatorio della lingua e della cultura italiana. Per la lingua italiana sono previste tre annualità (I, II e III), mentre per la cultura ne sono previste due (I e II), di cui la seconda in alternativa a Linguistica italiana. Lo studio della lingua e della cultura italiana è ulteriore a quello di due lingue straniere. Sono previste, oltre alle annualità di lingua e cultura italiana, tre annualità (I, II e III) di una lingua straniera e due (I e II) di un'altra, corredate da un'annualità di ciascuna cultura, o da due annualità (I e II) della cultura relativa a una sola delle due lingue.

Corsi in lingua straniera
