At the end of the course in Linguistics students obtain a knowledge about the most important issues of theoretical linguistics, which will be useful for the study of Historical linguistics (Glottologia) as well as the study of grammar of foreign languages.
Knowledge and understanding
Students will acquire knowledge and comprehension skills in the field of theoretical linguistics thanks to two main sources: textbooks and frontal lectures, which main aim is to deepen and show with examples the most important themes covered in the textbooks.
Applying knowledge and understanding
Students will be able to apply their knowledge and comprehension skills successfully in the study of grammar of foreign languages as well as language teaching.
Students will acquire evaluation skills which will allow them to express autonomous judgements on the grammars which they use and to integrate their presentations with personal considerations, eventually based on elements acquired during subsequent studies.
Thanks to the critical considerations made on the main points of the subject, students will be able to communicate information, ideas, problems and solutions to both specialist and non-specialist regarding linguistic matters.
Students will also obtain a cultural baggage which will allow them to continue their studies in the linguistic field as well as contributing to their educational path as teachers of foreign languages.
