Object and structure of studies

The department has a triple educational role:

  • Firstly, to provide a combined high level training in management and business issues linked with the knowledge of 2(+1) languages for specific purposes.

  • Secondly, the training of specialized translators in at least two languages. The graduates work on a freelance and/or in-house basis for the private industry or the public sector.

  • Thirdly, the graduates of the Department are trained in teaching methodology.

 

The duration of studies at the Department is four years, which are divided into eight semesters. During the first seven semesters, students attend lectures, workshops and seminars. They are assessed on the basis of an optional mid-term exam and a compulsory examination at the end of the semester. In the 8th semester the students are placed with a company or a public service for their practical, on-the-job training, while they also work on their graduate project.

 

Language on the basis of which a student has been admitted to Epirus Institute of Technology is designated as Language A' on the course curriculum (English, French, German or Italian). It is assumed that the admitted student has a linguistic competence equivalent to the level B2 of the Common European Framework for Languages set out by the Council of Europe. Language B’ is one of the aforementioned – different, of course, from Language A’.

Language B’ is offered both for beginners and for the students joining Epirus Institute of Technology with a competence responding to level B2. In the second semester, students can choose one or more Language C' courses as electives. They can choose from English, German, French, Italian, Spanish and Russian. These are beginner’s courses. The introduction of courses in other languages is under consideration.

 

In the first two semesters the courses are common for all students. In the third semester, students choose to specialize either in the domain of management or in translation. It is pointed out that all students, regardless of which specialization they choose, are also trained in foreign language teaching.
