The 2-year MA program (Laurea magistrale) in English and American Studies at the University of Torino is a graduate program in the humanities focusing on English and North American language/linguistics, pieces of literature and cultures, analyzed in an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective.
Fully taught in English, the program prepares graduates who are professionally competent in English and have acquired an in-depth understanding of literature and cultures in English – i.e. British, North-American and postcolonial – as well as aspects of the history-shaping those cultures.
This program is part of the graduate degree program (“Laurea magistrale”) in Lingue e Letterature Moderne (LM-37).
Candidates must have completed – prior to admission – at least a three-year university degree (“Laurea o diploma Universitario”). If issued abroad, the degree must come from an academically recognized institution, as per current regulations of admission to Italian universities. Minimum admission requirements include:
