          Università statale di Milano

          • Milan, Italy
          • The aim of the degree course was to provide a series of basic theoretical and scientific skills and high-level practical skills related to the sphere of English and Portuguese languages and literature, having in mind the international dimension of its educational offer. Prevalence was given to the teaching of the main European languages, not separated from theoretical reflection on the aspects of theoretical and applied linguistics, and was accompanied by the study of the corresponding literary manifestations over the time and in space. The attention that the degree program accords to the linguistic disciplines, both theoretical and practical, has assured me competences immediately expendable in all those fields of the world of work and of the profession that require a written and oral mastery of foreign languages, accompanied by a solid basic humanistic-literary training of international origin. In particular, the competences released from the course of studies allow me to be professionally active as a "specialist in human, social and managerial sciences", as a high-level translator or a linguist or text editor; I can also operate in traditional publishing houses oriented to multimedia publications, translation agencies, and localization of websites and portals; I can insert myself in the fields of human resources management, relations with multinational companies, chambers of commerce and foreign companies, hospitality and support services connected to fairs, events, and congresses; I am also able to work in the field of business intelligence and relations with cultural institutions and foreign non-governmental bodies. I was also able to attend courses of my choice. I, therefore, decided to deepen my passion for the cinema industry by attending a course in History and Criticism of the Cinema, thanks to which I was able to deepen my knowledge of the history of cinema. Part of the course was also focused on contemporary American cinema, which we have analyzed in depth by visioning some films of the various trends. I also attended a lab dedicated to the study of the Mockumentary (From Theory to Practice). This lab gave me basic knowledge about filming and mockumentary techniques. It also helped me to improve my team-working skills by filming a zero budget short film with my classmates.
