Undergraduate degree combinations that include Italian are:

If you have some experience of modern language learning, you can take Italian language & culture modules either as part of your degree (unrestricted modules) or alongside your degree (not-for-credit modules).
The School of Languages and Cultures offers a wide range of masters courses which can include Italian as a language. You can also choose to study not-for-credit modules in Italian as an extra-curricular activity in addition to your studies.
Postgraduate research students can study Italian modules on a not-for-credit basis alongside their research. These may be included in your Doctoral Development Programme (DDP) portfolio if relevant to your doctoral research and/or career development.
