Id-Dipartiment tal-Malti

Id-Dipartiment tal-Malti

Id-Dipartiment tal-Malti jaħdem biex iġib ’il quddiem l-istudju tal-ilsien Malti, ta’ ġrajjietu, u tal-letteratura tiegħu, bit-tagħlim u bir-riċerka. Dan jagħmlu f’għadd ta’ korsijiet li jwasslu għall-ksib tal-ewwel grad u ta’ gradi ogħla fil-Malti: B.A., B.A. (Unuri), M.A., M.Phil. u Ph.D. Minbarra l-korsijiet ta’ filgħodu, id-Dipartiment tal-Malti joffri żewġ korsijiet ta’ filgħaxija, iċ-Ċertifikat fil-Qari tal-Provi fil-Malti, bi sħab mal-Kunsill Nazzjonali tal-Ilsien Malti, u d-Diploma fil-Letteratura Maltija.

Barra minn hekk, jipprovdi programmi ta’ studju lil studenti minn dipartimenti, fakultajiet u istituti oħra, bħalma huma tal-Komunikazzjoni, tal-Politika Soċjali u l-Ħidma Soċjali, u tal-Mediċina. Jaħdem fit-tagħlim u r-riċerka tal-Malti bħala Lsien Barrani. Fl-aħħar snin żviluppa programmi fl-użu tal-Malti f’oqsma speċjalizzati, bħall-Malti għall-professjonisti mediċi, għall-ħaddiema soċjali, għall-amministraturi pubbliċi u għall-ġurnalisti u x-xandara. B’mod regolari jorganizza korsijiet fi ħdan id-DegreePlus li jkopru temi bħall-ortografija u t-tisħiħ tal-lingwa, il-kitba kreattiva, il-Malti Mediku u l-Malti Legali.

Id-Dipartiment tal-Malti beda fit-tletinijiet tas-seklu għoxrin. Il-Prof. Ġużè Aquilina bena d-dipartiment u fil-bidu ħadem tista’ tgħid waħdu fl-oqsma tal-letteratura u tal-lingwistika. Minn dak iż-żmien inbidlu ħafna l-affarijiet. Illum, għaxar letturi jgħallmu qasam jew ieħor skont l-ispeċjalizzazzjoni tagħhom. U d-Dipartiment tal-Malti sar wieħed mill-ikbar dipartimenti fil-Fakultà tal-Arti. Kull sena akkademika madwar 600 ruħ isegwu korsijiet organizzati mid-Dipartiment dwar il-lingwa u l-letteratura Maltija fil-livell ta’ Ċertifikat, Diploma, Baċellerat, Masters, u Dottorat.

 

The Department of Maltese within the Faculty of Arts strives towards the advancement of the study of Maltese linguistics, the history of the language, and the critical appreciation of its literature through teaching and research. It offers a number of courses leading to the award of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Maltese: B.A., B.A. (Hons), M.A., M.Phil. and Ph.D. Moreover, the Department offers two evening programmes, namely a Proofreading Certificate in Maltese, in collaboration with the National Council for the Maltese Language, and Diploma for Maltese Literature.

The Department also delivers study-units to students in other departments, faculties or institutes, such as students from the Departments of Communication, Social Policy and Social Work, and Medicine. It also supports teaching and research of Maltese as a Foreign Language, and it has recently developed programmes in the use of Maltese in specialised sectors, such as Maltese for medical professionals, for social workers, for public administrators and for journalists and presenters. It also regularly offers courses in the DegreePlus programme, which offer assistance in areas such as spelling and improving the language, creative writing, Medical Maltese and Legal Maltese.

The Department of Maltese was founded in the 1930s. Prof. Ġużè Aquilina founded the Department and in the beginning he worked practically alone in the areas of literature and linguistics. Many things have changed since that time. Nowadays, ten lecturers teach one field or another according to their specialisation. The Department of Maltese became one of the biggest departments in the Faculty of Arts. Every academic year, around 600 students follow courses at Certificate, Diploma, Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral level, organised by the Department on the Maltese language and its literature.   

Riċerka

Ir-riċerka li ssir fid-Dipartiment tal-Malti hi varjata sew. Biss biss, id-Dipartiment imexxi disa’ proġetti ta’ riċerka ffinanzjati mir-Research Seed Fund tal-Università ta’ Malta fuq temi bħad-djaletti ta’ Malta u Għawdex, it-tradizzjoni orali, it-terminoloġija marbuta ma’ snajja’ tradizzjonali u setturi oħra tal-ħajja, u l-analiżi ta’ manuskritti qodma. Issir ikoll riċerka fuq oqsma tal-grammatika u l-ortografija tal-Malti, tal-kritika u t-teorija letterarja, u tal-Malti fl-informatika, fost l-oħrajn.

Il-letturi flimkien mal-istudenti regolarment jorganizzaw proġetti, seminars u konferenzi fuq l-istorja tal-Malti, ix-xogħlijiet tal-persunaġġi ewlenin li ħadmu b’risq il-Malti, bħal Mikiel Anton Vassalli, Agius De Soldanis, Dun Karm u Juann Mamo. Kull sena jsiru mal-25 teżi tal-Baċellerat u tal-Masters. Il-letturi jippubblikaw artikli u kotba akkademiċi, u jagħmlu taħditiet f’konferenzi f’Malta u barra. Id-Dipartiment b’mod regolari jippubblika r-rivisti akkademiċi, Journal of Maltese Studies u Riċerkaturi.

 

Research forms a fundamental part of the Department’s key mission. It feeds into our students’ learning experience and actively contributes to the quality of teaching. Through the Research Seed Fund Project it runs nine research projects on various fields, including dialectology, oral tradition, terminology, diachronic studies, grammar and orthography, and literary criticism. The Department organises seminars, workshops and conferences on Maltese linguistics, the history of Maltese, and on the linguistic and literary contribution of scholars such as Mikiel Anton Vassalli, Agius de Soldanis, Dun Karm and Juann Mamo. Around twenty-five B.A. and M.A. dissertations are submitted every academic year. The members of the Department present papers at local and international conferences and publish studies, chapters and books. In addition, the Department regularly publishes the Journal of Maltese Studies and Riċerkaturi, two academic journals.
