Profile of the programme
The degree in Letters (L-10 class of degrees in Letters) is aimed at providing the basic postsecondary knowledge of the historical, linguistic and literary development of European civilizations and cultures and those related to them in space and time, from antiquity to the contemporary age, in particular promoting the study of the sources of each discipline in the original languages. The course of study is structured in two curricula, classic and modern; each of the two curricula, in addition to the common training subjects provided in the first year (Italian Literature, Geography, Linguistics- Glottologia, Latin language), offers in the second and third year teachings that characterize the training path of students in the classical or modern field. The curriculum includes the subjects indicated by the current ministerial legislation for access to teaching classes for the Lower and Higher Middle Schools.
Programme learning outcomes
Graduates of the Programme will be able to demonstrate: - solid basics as part of the qualifying study goals; - ability to relate and assess the characterizing elements (historical, linguistic, literary) and the essential lines of the development of European civilizations; - knowledge of the main types of sources together with the ability to read them in language and bibliography (also digital) tools. In addition, they will have to demonstrate that they are able to address the main issues, particularly in the context of specific interest, and the ability to identify possible topics of deepening, proving that they are able to deal with them with a critical attitude. The ability to apply knowledge and understanding will be expanded by the possibility of choosing in the various areas characterizing the teachings of those SSDs that synchronically and diacronically allow the contextualization of the prevailing area of interest.
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 third year students; however, students also have the option of anticipating the second year: the application can be submitted in the first year. 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.
