Specific admission requirements
Formal Requirements Italian First cycle qualification (Laurea) or foreign equivalent in the same or related subject area, with possible extra work if required competences are lacking.
Evaluation of specific subject knowledge on entry
Access to the course is free, but it is necessary to verify in advance the possession of the curricular requirements. They are two: to have achieved at least 90 ECTS in specific scientific-disciplinary sectors listed in the Course Regulations and in the study manifesto in the previous three-year course; have obtained a degree mark of not less than 95/110. The verification is carried out by checking the degree certificate. If you meet the requirements, the President of the Course issues the authorization that allows the student to complete the enrollment in the CdS. In case of shortages of the credits indicated in the requested SSDs, the student must take these credits in the form of single courses within the deadline set for enrollments. If, on the other hand, the degree mark is lower than what is required, the student must take an oral fitness exam in one or more of the SSDs characterizing the course. Based on the outcome of this examination and following a careful evaluation of the career carried out, the Council will decide on admission. Finally, students who intend to enroll in the degree class in Archeology must certify that they have participated in at least 4 weeks of archaeological excavation. In case of lack of this requirement, they are required to fill it during the first year of enrollment in the course, participating in the excavations organized by the teachers of the Course. Foreign students are required to take a test to verify their proficiency of the Italian language, except Erasmus Incoming students, Exchange Students and students in mobility as per the Cooperation Agreement

Qualification requirements and regulations
The student who achieves all the ECTS envisaged by the educational activities of the study plan is admitted to the final test, which must be taken in one of the courses in which the student has taken the exam during his entire university career. . The final test consists in the preparation of a written paper (about 70 folders of 2000 characters each and final devices) conducted under the guidance of a teacher-speaker, with whom the topic and the methods of compilation and organization of the material are agreed to be collected. In the preparation of the paper written, the student must demonstrate an adequate knowledge of the chosen subject, demonstrating that he / she has critical maturity and good written expression skills making use of the technical language of the discipline in which he / she graduates; he must also demonstrate his ability to conduct an original analysis around the research topic investigated, also thanks to the help of a large updated bibliography and first-hand material. The discussion of the written paper is public and takes place in front of a special commission made up of seven members appointed from among the professors serving at the University.
Examination regulations and grading scale
Assessment is normally an oral or written exam; in some cases there are intermediate exams during the course; other evaluation elements (seminars, reports, etc.) can be foreseen in specific course units and are described in the Course Unit Profiles. The grades for subject exams are measured in thirtieths (0-30 scale), the minimum grade is 18/30 and the maximum grade is 30/30. The maximum grade can be enhanced with “cum laude” (30 cum laude), in case of excellence. Grades are given by an exam commission of at least two teachers, whose President is the chair of the subject. The main exam sessions are held in January/February, March/April, June/July, September/October. The main exam sessions are held in the months of January / February, June / July, September; the sessions of March / April and November / December are reserved for students out of course. Students may retake exams, if not passed. The University provides an ECTS Grading Table, which shows the actual distribution of the examination and final grades among students for each degree programme. 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. In any case, the maximum score attributable to the final test is 7 points.
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 internship is an important training period in the student's experience. It can be done at Italian institutions, public and private, affiliated with the Dipartimento di Lettere, in particular located in Umbria (museums, superintendencies, art galleries, cultural associations, etc.), or abroad, at institutions with the which the Course has institutional relationships. Each internship credit corresponds to 25 hours of commitment; it is possible to carry out an internship up to a maximum of 9 credits (225 hours). The activities are coordinated by the Department's Internship Office. After an initial orientation interview, the Office prepares the necessary documentation (it is available on the Department website). At the end of the activity, the trainee and the body that hosted him complete an evaluation questionnaire. As part of the internship, students of the Archeology curriculum are required to earn 6 ECTS by participating in archaeological excavation campaigns organized by the teachers of the Course.
