    International Degree 

    International Degree with the Blaise Pascal University of Clermont Ferrand (France). The course provides elevated competence in interlinguistic and intercultural communication, developing a full mastery within students of translation, business and classic consecutive interpreting techniques (with note-taking), which are necessary skills for working in various fields of international cooperation and multimedia sectors.

    These techniques are coupled with an in-depth knowledge of the communicative dynamics and analytical tools of a linguistic nature that are essential for acquiring a full knowledge of the production and textual reception processes within interlinguistic and intercultural contexts. A particular emphasis is placed on the study of specialist language within the legal and economic sectors. Within the specific area of multimedia, the course develops skills aimed at the transposition and diffusion of audiovisual products that are beyond language, cultural and sensorial barriers.

    The course also provides a solid and advanced knowledge of the IT and telecommunications tools necessary to produce, communicate and archive digital contents, and to deal with the issues relating to innovation within an international contemporary society. Thanks to such skills, graduates will be able to operate as translators and interpreters within companies, institutions, cultural organisations and agencies, providing translations services for cinema and television. They will also be able to take on roles with an elevated level of responsibility and occupy managerial posts within the framework of transnational communication organisations, institutions and international bodies, acting as language professionals and international communication experts in both written and oral contexts (paper and digital texts).

    The course offers students the possibility of obtaining a double diploma that is valid in both countries: the Italian qualification and the Master's in Etudes interculturelles franco-italiennes (EIFI), issued by the partner university Blaise Pascal of Clermont Ferrand.
