NUIG launches new online Diploma in Italian

NUI Galway is delighted to announce the launch of an online Diploma in Italian.

Organised by the Discipline of Italian Studies at NUI Galway this unique programme is the first of its kind in Ireland and will be begin in September 2012. The Diploma is specifically tailored to suit the requirements of students who need flexibility in their time and mode of study and are not available to attend lecturers on campus.

The course concentrates on all four main language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) and provides a gradual introduction to the structures and functions of the language. In addition, a module on oral and intercultural skills will introduce various aspects of Italian life from an intercultural perspective.

Professor Paolo Bartoloni, Head of Italian, NUI Galway, said: “The online Diploma in Italian is a groundbreaking experience employing the latest skills in e-learning and will enable learners to study Italian in their own time, wherever they are, and as part of a community of e-learners.”

In order to facilitate interaction and create a supportive learning environment, face-to-face on campus sessions will take place as part of the course. A practical introductory session in the use of computers will also be given at the beginning of the course to ensure that all students have basic computer skills.

The Diploma in Italian is open to everybody and is designed for those who have no previous knowledge of the language.

Closing date for applications is Friday, 13 July and full details is available at www.nuigalway.ie/italian/onlinediploma.html.

Further information is available from Dr Laura McLoughlin at 091 492240 or laura.mcloughlin@nuigalway.ie.
