What will I learn?
In the BEd degree teacher training programme for the subject of Italian, students deal with the Italian language, literature and the cultural aspects of the Italian speech area. Students hone their language skills including listening, reading, oral and writing skills. Students will be qualified to analyse the development and current functioning of Italian and to adequately examine literary periods, currents, genres, authors and works. Furthermore, students will acquire a profound and differentiated knowledge of the cultural aspects of Italian linguistic areas. With teaching practices and by trying out teaching materials, courses in teaching methodology prepare students for their future career in the best possible way.
Which career opportunities do I have?
The primary aim of the teacher training programme is the professional, didactical, academical and pedagogical-practical training for teaching Italian in secondary schools.
The Department of Romance Studies at the University of Salzburg offers students an excellent student-to-staff ratio. Native speakers allow students an authentic access to the Italian language and cultural areas. Moreover, studying Italian in Salzburg is particularly attractive due to the department’s large number of Erasmus partnerships (with Florence, Milan, Perugia and Rome, amongst others).
