Dean: Prof. Giovanni Gobber

The Faculty of Linguistic Sciences and Foreign Literatures at Università Cattolica offers training and education that combine the passion for the languages and the cultures of foreign countries with the acquisition of business, tourism, communication and international relations skills. A project in line with the rapid and intense changes in the global context in the cultural, social and professional fields.

Every language is a culture. [...] The real loss could lie in the monoculture - whatever it may be - in the loss in itself of a cultural pluralism - since only pluralism is the bearer of comparison, of fruitful dialectics, of cultural creativity, of civil wealth immanent in the field of language training.
Sergio Cigada, First Dean of the Faculty of Linguistic Sciences and Foreign Literatures

Language and literature courses are based on a recognised tradition of the University and guarantee the acquisition of a qualified and specialised linguistic ability in at least two languages of your choice.

The theoretical, applied as well as historical linguistic sciences represent the epistemological basis of the various training profiles. Those who graduate in Linguistic Sciences thus have a linguistic passepartout to know and explore the world. It is no coincidence that the Faculty is among the best in Italy in the humanities in relation to the employment rate of its graduates.
The Faculty offers a degree programme in Linguistic Sciences, active in Milan and Brescia, divided into different curricula and profiles, designed to acquire knowledge in specific professional areas. In addition, the Interfaculty degree programme in Linguistic Sciences for International Relations is active in Milan, in collaboration with the Faculty of Political and Social Sciences.
This offer, which takes into account the needs of the global reality, favours a faster integration into the world of work, with the satisfaction of having met your own interests, aspirations and inclinations.
