Institution Logo Leiden University

The Master's programme Italian Language and Linguistics at Leiden University is a specialisation of the MA Modern Languages and draws on diachronic and synchronic perspectives to bring you an advanced qualification in Italian linguistics.

Italian Language and Linguistics focuses on the most relevant aspects of Italian linguistics: how it connects to social and cultural issues; how it varies across time and place; how it is transmitted, taught and learned. An important aspect of the programme is exploring the dynamics that led to the literary language of Italian becoming the country's national language.

All courses take a global and comparative approach: you will learn how to critically assess an issue from multiple perspectives. You will also acquire the skills to design an optimal language training plan by studying and comparing current language teaching methods.
