We have been training the best Italian interpreters and translators for decades. Today, we train a professional figure indispensable to the world in which we live: the language mediator.
The three-year degree course (equivalent to BA) in Language Mediation Sciences was designed to enhance cultural, scientific and practical education of future language mediators, who are highly specialised figures in multiculturalism and increasingly in demand in various areas of the job market.

Our pluses are boundless

A single degree course with three different and specific subject areas: our range of courses is rich and very interesting.

  • English is compulsory for all students.
  • You may choose the second language from Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian, Spanish, and German.
  • As extracurricular activities you may choose from Japanese, Portuguese, and Swedish.
  • The final degree you will attain is equivalent to a university degree.
  • Access to a post-graduate university degree course (equivalent to MA) in Specialised Translation and Interpreting is guaranteed.
  • Programmes taught in the first year are common to all courses.
  • From the second year onwards, students will follow the curriculum of the taught programme chosen.
  • Students may get a study experience abroad through the Erasmus+ Programme.


In the second year, you will be able to choose your pathway.

Not all language mediators are the same. That is why, at the second and third year, students are asked to choose one of the three taught programmes available: three different ways to practise the profession of translator or interpreter thanks to specific and trasversali skills.

Law, Communication, Marketing: these are the core subjects you may study in depth.

What is the role of a Language Mediator in the world?

Globalisation has created many open and multi-ethnic societies: it is what we call a ‘world without borders.’ This process of cultural integration has required a professional figure such as the Language Mediator, who is able not only to translate languages, but also to mediate in very different cultural contexts.
This is why the Linguistic Mediator can be employed not only in the traditional field of translation and interpreting, but also in other areas where a high level of specialisation is required.
