The courses in Language Mediation offers students opportunities to learn about inter-linguistic and intercultural communication through the study European and non-European languages.

The three-year undergraduate course in Language Mediation, together with the following two-year postgraduate course in Modern Languages for International Communication and Cooperation, provide students with the preparation and skills required in various professions, such as foreign language correspondent, international communication and language expert, translator, and interpreter.

Students are taught advanced competencies in translation, liaison/dialogue interpreting, and consecutive interpreting. Additionally, students will learn technical languages and linguistically based analytical skills needed to acquire a full awareness of the dynamics of communication and the processes involved in the production and reception of texts. Specific attention is also paid to the languages of commerce and tourism, advertising, politics and international law, and to the use of multimedia within the context of the transposition and diffusion of audiovisual products that transcend barriers of a linguistic, cultural, or sensory nature. The courses also teach students the advanced technological and telematics skills required to produce, communicate, and store digital information.

Both Language Mediation and Modern Languages for International Communication and Cooperation involve targeted internships that specifically require technical translation and/or interpreting in businesses that specialise in language services.
