LICUS: Teach Italian Language and Culture to International Students

LICUS: Teach Italian Language and Culture to International Students

Tor Vergata University of Rome offers a new programme in “LICUS – Italian Language and Culture for International Students: Welcoming and Internationalisation”. The course aims at training Italian and International students and professionals to work both in Italy and abroad in the fields of education, welcoming, cultural promotion and internationalization, concerning the teaching of Italian language and culture to foreigners.

LICUS will also provide students with the interdisciplinary knowledge and soft and hard skills necessary to work in different social and educational contexts.

The Programme

The programme includes the following disciplinary fields:

  • Teaching Italian as a foreign/second language
    (Linguistics, Modern language teaching, History of Italian language, Theories and techniques for Italian language teaching).
  • Teaching Italian Culture and Literature
    (Literature, Drama, Cinema, Music).
  • Tools for the analysis of social and cultural contexts in which to work
    (Psychology, Sociology, Anthropology, Intercultural Pedagogy).
  • Tools for analyzing the evolution of socio-economic and cultural
    processes (History, Geography, Law, Economics).
  • Educational methodologies and technologies.

The programme includes workshop activities that aim to combine the theory concerning the different disciplines with the techniques, strategies and practices of their application in the classroom and in specific contexts.

The Internship is pivotal for the students’ training since it provides the chance to experience the application in different contexts of the knowledge and skills acquired during the course.

Finally, the international orientation of the course is given by the opportunity, provided by students’ mobility programs, to achieve at least 12 ECTS abroad at universities which deliver courses in Italian language or in disciplines relating to Italian language teaching.

The online teaching method is an added value to the course, since e-learning is by its nature to be considered a strategy of
