Programme objectives

The interdisciplinary nature of the Degree Course in Interpreting and Communication will provide the student with both the oral and written skills of the target languages, as well as the technical and communicative skills necessary to operate in the linguistic mediation sector. These are the characteristics that, together with a solid understanding in the humanistic, legal and economic fields, form a professional profile capable of responding to specific market needs.

For this reason, in addition to the ability to interpret and translate into two foreign languages through laboratory practice, the programme aims to deliver a sound preparation in literature, culture and history of languages, as well as providing the basics of economic processes and international jurisprudence. The study of theoretical, methodological, deontological and psycho-social issues is aimed at achieving a critical approach, which can allow the graduate to address a wide range of situations of interlingual and intercultural communication.

Continuing studies

An Interpreting and Communication degree will grant graduates access to IULM’s two-year masters degree in Conference Interpreting and Specialized Translation.

Career opportunities

A degree in Interpreting and Communication will allow graduates to work in any field that requires knowledge and use of foreign languages in a professional context, both in Italy and abroad. This includes multinational corporations, public institutions, the fashion industry, journalism, the publishing industry, cultural events and more.

Some specific roles that graduates can take on: external relations manager for companies or public institutions; corporate communications manager for multinational corporations or import/export businesses; spokesperson and press agent; and news agency intermediary.
