About

The Italian programme offered by The University of Edinburgh is ideal if you have a clear idea of the independent research you wish to undertake at Masters level in any area of Italian studies, from medieval to contemporary culture.

Overview

Offered at Edinburgh since the late 16th century, Italian was formally added to the University’s curriculum in 1919 and, in the century since, has developed into a broad area of study.

Join the  Italian programme offered by The University of Edinburgh and undertake a project comprising research assignments and a 15,000-word dissertation under the guidance of an experienced and well-published supervisor.

Our expertise covers most areas of Italian cultural studies from the Middle Ages to the present, including:

  • literary history and theory
  • comparative studies
  • translation
  • film studies
  • philology
  • philosophy

Facilities

The historic capital city of Edinburgh contains exceptional resources for study and research in Italian.

Based in the Main University Library, the Centre for Research Collections is unique in the UK, bringing together a collection of more than 400,000 rare books, six kilometres of archives and manuscripts, and the University’s collections of art, historical musical instruments and other objects. Many of our Special Collections are digitised and available online.

From the Italian Cultural Institute to the National Library of Scotland, both of which are within a short walk of our buildings, you’ll find many places to enrich your cultural and academic interest in one of the world’s great civilisations, while enjoying the cinemas, theatres, libraries and galleries of one of its favourite festival cities.

There are fantastic medieval, Renaissance and modern collections in the National Galleries of Scotland, and most of the city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with the Old Town retaining many of its medieval buildings and streets.

Programme Structure

  • This programme includes training on research skills, methods and problems. Between the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures (LLC), the Careers Service and the Institute for Academic Development (IAD), you’ll find a further range of programmes and resources to help you develop your postgraduate skills, as well as having access to the University’s fantastic libraries, collections and worldwide strategic partnerships.
