Why not pursue the study of the literature and history of this fantastic country with the MA in Italian Studies at Warnborough College?
According to the Cambridge historian, Denis Mack Smith, no other people has had such a civilizing impact. For A. J. Whyte, the world is inestimably indebted to Italy, for its contribution to civilization and human progress in so many areas has been incalculable. Suffice it to say that Roman Law is the foundation of most Western legal systems, while the manners of the English gentleman and the French gentilhomme are derived from the Italian Renaissance.
Furthermore, Italy has given us, among other things, opera (Peri and Caccini), the sonnet (Iacopo da Lentini), double-entry book-keeping and the first printed textbook on modern accounting (Luca Pacioli), the first bank (Monte dei Paschi di Siena), the oldest European University (Bologna), the first medical school (Salerno), the barometer (E. Torricelli), the experimental method (Galileo), the first treatise on human anatomy (Mondino dei Liuzzi), the foundations of modern historiography and aesthetics (G. B. Vico), the piano (Bartolomeo Cristofori) and the violin (Gasparo da Salò), the discovery of America (Columbus), wireless telegraphy (Marconi), the telephone (Antonio Meucci) and the typewriter (G. Ravizza), as well as more than seventy percent of the world’s art treasures. The modules in this programme refer to some important aspects of Italian civilization, history, art, culture and literature.
Once you have completed the MA in Italian Studies, your analytical skills will be much more adept and you will be able to move into many fields, including: teaching (most likely at the college level), course development and curricula design, research, civil service, local government, charities, information technology, solicitor’s firms, publishing, journalism, and so forth.
