Course description

If you have A level Italian or equivalent, Italian A will allow you to become fluent in a major European language while exploring Italyâ??s fascinating history and rich culture. Core modules will develop your language skills and introduce you to Italian cinema, art, literature or history. But youâ??ll also choose from an array of optional modules that reflect our diverse research interests, from Dante and Renaissance art to the writings of Italo Calvino, or specialised uses of Italian in business. Our joint honours programmes with Music provide an excellent opportunity to combine your interests in music with another subject. Youâ??ll be able to develop your understanding of musicâ??s role in history and culture, as well as expressing your creativity through composition or showcasing your performance abilities. Youâ??ll combine core and optional modules to develop a good understanding of musical principles and develop specialist knowledge and skills in the aspects of music that suit you.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
This is one of the less common modern languages for students to take, but graduates from Italian courses have a lot of options available to them when they complete their degrees. Last year’s graduates in Italian had a particularly low unemployment rate (we can’t guarantee this will be the case when you graduate, but it is encouraging). About one in six graduates in 2012 got jobs overseas – often as English teachers – which is much higher than for most subjects. Nearly half of the rest went to work in London. Those who want to stay at home to work usually find jobs anywhere where good communication skills are a must – and in 2012, that included education, marketing, PR and finance. But remember, whilst employers say they rate graduates who have more than one language, you need to have them as part of a whole package of good skills.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Music is a popular degree subject and a little over 4,600 degrees were awarded to UK graduates in 2012. Most were working after six months – but postgraduate study (usually continuing with music) is quite common and a lot of graduates go into music teaching, often as freelance or travelling music teachers of particular instruments. Obviously, many music graduates get work as musicians as well, or work as sound recordists and in similar technical roles. Music is important in advertising and so a lot of graduates go into this industry and management is also a popular job role for music graduates. Because a lot of musician work is temporary or freelance, the most common way for new graduates to get jobs in music is through their own contacts, so learning how to make good use of networks and contacts might help in your career.
