This degree combines philosophy with the study of Italian language, art, and culture, which have had a lasting impact on Western civilisation. Italian is one of the most studied languages in the world and is spoken globally. The course provides a valuable skill set, ideally tailored to the increasingly globalised workplace. For philosophy, you will study units covering an introduction to philosophy, logic, and realism and normativity. You will follow a structured language course in Italian, as well as explore Italy's rich history and culture, choosing from a range of options that focus on literature, cinema, thought, politics and visual culture. You will spend your third year abroad in Italy, extending your language skills and cultural knowledge. To find out more about studying abroad, visit Global Opportunities (https://www.bristol.ac.uk/global-opportunities/go-abroad/). Both departments encourage strong synergy between research and teaching, which results in a vibrant learning environment as staff respond to new research. This course combination offers an enriching experience with exciting intellectual challenges and a range of options that will allow you to pursue your own interests. Teaching is delivered through lectures, tutorials, seminars, workshops, and one-to-one project supervision. Assessments may include presentations, essays, commentaries, exams, collaborative projects, debates, podcasts, video essays, and dissertations. Our course will ensure you practise a range of skills, which will make you attractive to future employers in the sector of your choice. Italian can be studied from beginners' level and post-A level (or equivalent). As a modern languages student, you will have access to our state-of-the-art Multimedia Centre. You can also access extracurricular activities such as talks by visiting speakers, societies, language cafes, student newspapers, and talent shows.
