Profile of the programme
The master's degree in classical civilizations has the objective of providing advanced knowledge in the area of historical, linguistic and literary disciplines of classical civilizations. The study of sources in the original languages with specific attention to historical, literary, philological and archaeological aspects is aimed at achieving advanced critical and methodological knowledge in the context of Greco-Roman civilizations. In view of a greater internationalization of the professional profile, the students of the course can participate in integrated study programs aimed at obtaining the double degree (binational diploma) in collaboration with the Universities of Freiburg i. Br. (Germany), Hamburg (Germany), Münster (Germany), Toulouse (France) and Salamanca (Spain).

At the end of the course, graduates will have acquired: - knowledge and understanding of the historical-cultural dynamics of ancient civilizations; - specialist knowledge of ancient history; - specialist knowledge of classical languages ¿¿and literature. Graduates in the master's degree course will have acquired: - ability to relate and evaluate the characterizing elements (historical, linguistic, literary) the essential lines of the development of classical civilizations; - knowledge of the main sources and ability to interpret them in the light of the most updated historiographical and methodological debate; - knowledge of the main bibliography in the various European languages ¿¿of culture; - ability to apply the knowledge and skills acquired in order to deal with research topics, even unfamiliar ones, moving in wider and interdisciplinary contexts than those of one's own field of study.
Qualification requirements and regulations
The final test for the achievement of the title (9 credits), consists of two steps: 1) a written paper on a topic agreed between the thesi director and the student in the context of one of the courses of the study course in which the student took the exam; 2) discussion of the work before a specific commission which includes a co-rapporteur and a possible co-supervisor. The Evaluation Commission for the final exam, made up of at least 7 members, is chaired, as a rule, by a full professor of the Department. The discussion lasts about twenty minutes. After a short presentation of the thesis topic by the supervisor, the graduating student deepens the presentation also on the basis of the questions posed by the supervisor, the co-supervisor and possibly the other members of the commission. At the end of the discussion, the commission decides the final grade behind closed doors, taking into account the weighted average resulting from the exams taken and the regularity of the studies and assessing the cultural maturity and intellectual processing capacity of the student, as well as the quality and presentation of the 'final draft during discussion. The theses are literary, historical, philological, artistic; they are about forty pages long, with notes and critical bibliography.
Examination regulations and grading scale
For the assessment of the students' profit, teachers can use written tests with development of topics and / or tests, oral exams, discussion of papers, critical examination of texts. The assessment of the disciplinary exams is expressed in thirtieths (scale 0-30), the minimum grade is 18/30 and the maximum 30/30. Honors (30 cum laude) can be added to the maximum grade, if the quality of the exam is considered excellent. The possibility of integrated examination tests for multiple courses or coordinated modules is provided. The assessment is however concluded by an individual oral and / or written exam with the attribution of a single final mark on all credits for each course or more courses and integrated modules followed, with the exception of the registration of the Erasmus exams for which is adopted a different procedure. The teacher can arrange for forms of exemption in itinere for attending students, relating to the modules in which the course is divided, which however acquire value only by passing the official test (oral and / or individual written exam), in the absence of which they have no legal validity. The main exam sessions are held in January/February, March/April, June/July, September/October, November/December. Students may retake exams, if not passed. The final degree evaluation is expressed in one hundred and tenths (0-110 scale), the minimum grade is 66/110 and the maximum grade is 110/110. The calculation of the final grade of each candidate takes into account the average of the grades obtained in the subject exams, as well as the quality of the work performed in research or in the final thesis which is discussed in public before an exam commission. “Cum laude” (110 cum laude) may be added to the maximum grade if the exam commission decides unanimously.
Obligatory or optional mobility windows
Erasmus exchanges concern first and second year students. The deadlines are in September (with departures from October) or in January (with departures from March). The periods of stay are flexible, and adaptable to the needs of the students: from a minimum of 3 months to a maximum of 12.
Work-based learning
The course of study makes use of a Department service for the performance of internships and internships. To carry out this service, the Internship and Internship Office uses the following tools: - Individual interviews (motivation, evaluation, choice); - Match / demand online match database (internship offers and online application possibilities); - Publication of list of active agreements with the Department (list that is updated frequently). To maintain relations with the host entities, the Office uses the following tools: Relationship through telephone contacts, meetings, e-mails with the structures of interest and host students on internships. The Internship is important because it allows students to have contact with the world of work, even before having graduated. In addition to mobility for study purposes, the University also promotes, within the Erasmus + program, an action aimed at student traineeships. Thanks to the European Erasmus + Traineeship program, it is possible to carry out an internship period with a foreign company or institution. Every year the University issues a call for the selection of students admitted to European funding. The call generally comes out in June. The internship can be done within the course of study, and in this case it allows you to acquire formative credits (CFU) necessary for the achievement of the Degree, after the achievement of the title, for a recent graduate experience. In this second case, the application must be submitted before graduation, that is, when you are still a student of the University.
Occupational profiles of graduates
Alongside the teaching activity, the master's degree program provides skills that can be put to good use in several areas: from editorial and editorial work (in the whole breadth of production processes), critical and philological, in public bodies such as companies and private and freelance bodies, working in archives and libraries, and more generally in cultural and artistic services, superintendencies, foundations, cultural institutes; in companies specializing in cultural tourism.
