UCL Department of Italian

School of European Languages, Culture & Society (SELCS)







UCL was the first university in the UK to offer Italian Studies. Today, we are housed within the School of European Languages, Culture & Society and our focus is on understanding the richness of Italian culture within a global context. Students are encouraged to discover and explore the language and culture through the study of a wide range of texts taught in Italian-  literary, visual and historical. The resources of London allow us to link our teaching to visits to museums, exhibitions and performances, and to visits by speakers from Italy in ways hard to match elsewhere. The intellectual vitality of the department is in tune with that of the city, underpinning its international reputation.
