Course Description

Italian (Conversion Course)



The Higher Diploma in Arts (Italian) is a conversion course for those with a prior knowledge of Italian who want to study Italian language and culture to honours degree level. Competence in Italian language on entry should be equivalent to the standard in Italian achieved at the end of First Arts.

It is aimed at graduates who may want to be considered for a masters course in the subject area subsequently (but do not have an honours degree in Italian) or who may want to add Italian to their qualifications.

The course involves the study of Italian language to BA level and of Italian culture (literature, theatre, cinema, art, media) from Dante to Berlusconi.

Carear PathItalian is not widely taught in Irish schools and consequently our student numbers are small compared, for example, to those in French. Demand by employers in Ireland for graduates of Italian, with the strong language and analytical skills you can acquire with us, is currently greater than supply, but many of our graduates also choose to work in Italy or other countries. The Department also has a LinkedIn Group exclusively for its graduates, where information on vacancies is exchanged. Starting Salaries Employers place a high value on graduates with strong language skills of the kind you can acquire by studying Italian at UCC. At a careers session in December 2012, Anne Gough, Grafton Recruitment and Cork Chamber Ambassador, told prospective students that a non-language graduate might start on 25,000, while, in the same company in the Cork area, a graduate with a language would start on 32,500.
