If you have a passion for languages, then the “Scienze della Mediazione Linguistica” course will start you on your path towards becoming a translator or an interpreter. Studying languages requires more than just a contact with the language – one must be immersed in it. Mother tongue teachers, small focused groups, and experts and professionals from different sectors and all walks of life, are instrumental in creating an environment that can concretise your passion.
SSML di Varese is a university in Varese that since 2002 has been preparing students that want to become translators, interpreters, or linguistic mediators. Students enroled in the BSc in Linguistic Mediation must choose a second and third language to study, together with English. For the second language, students can choose between French, German, Spanish, and Chinese, and for the third language, students can choose between Chinese, Japanese, and Spanish, but Spanish is only available as either a 2nd or 3rd language.
During the 3 years of study, students will attend lessons that focus on interpreting and translating from and to their first and second languages from Italian, together with analysis, literature, history, law, and economics. The complete list of course appears in the table below.
