The Modern Languages Unit includes professors and researchers from different areas of study. It offers a degree programme in "Modern Foreign Languages and Civilisations" to students interested in deepening their knowledge of foreign languages and cultures, through the analysis of works, authors and movements and their historic and sociological impact.
The Unit is a natural continuation of the Language sector of the former A.L.E.F. Department, which was already the Department of Modern Foreign Languages and Literature.
