It is with much pride that the University of Calabria announces the introduction of Unical Summer School in Translation and Intercultural Communication. The Summer School is an international University program which intends to provide high quality education during the summer session. It aims to promote a cross- cultural perspective in the areas of communication, culture and society while taking into account the contributions of sociology, philosophy, science, visual arts, film and especially language and literature.
Communication skills are crucial tools in everyday life. This is why the Summer School in Translation and Intercultural Communication intends to create opportunity for us to orient ourselves in a multicultural world and to study the complex forms of communication present in our world.

In order to provide an integrated cross-cultural experience, the Department of Language and Educational Sciences has signed agreements with schools, institutions, academic departments, private and public entities outside our Italian borders, in particular St. Jerome’s University at the University of Waterloo. We are privileged to have the participation of many visiting professors who will provide part of their courses in foreign languages (English; German).

The Summer School in Translation and Intercultural Communication offers a highly academic two week course. It is geared to international students. This interactive experience includes:

- Lectures held by professors from the University of Calabria as well as other foreign universities
(32 instructional hours)
- Seminars (4 hours)

- Workshops (6 hours)

- Guided tours
- Movie screenings
- Individual Study (28 hours)
