Immigration issues in Italy call for specific professionals able to handle the integration process of immigrant children and adults both in schools and other types of structures. 
The course, which aims to provide foreign language teaching training, involves two paths: the first for Italian language teaching to foreigners (L2 course) and the second for Italian language teaching abroad (LS course). The LS course, in turn, consists of two specialisations: the first is centred on Italian language teaching (teaching specialisation), including specialised and specific language, the second on the promotion and teaching of Italian language and culture (organizational specialisation).

Professional profiles
