Bachelor's Degree - Course in Italian Literature (L-10)Curricula- Classic literature- Modern literature - Languages of music, entertainment and media-HistoryDuration3 yearsCourse characteristicsThe main aim of the Course in Classical Literature is to train students with a strong humanistic character. It offers four courses of study: Classical literature, Modern literature , Languages of music, entertainment and media, History. The complex of basic educational activities, common to all the courses, directs the humanistic education, pursued through the progressive consolidation of theoretical knowledge and methodological tools, towards a rigorous deepening of the dynamics of languages, texts and literary traditions (in an ancient, medieval, modern and contemporary key), of historical phenomena and of today's communication. The specific characterization of the single paths, then, is able on the one hand to lay the foundations of a vocational training in the various reference areas and, on the other, to carry out an orientation for the subsequent training and professional choices.The teaching activity includes lectures, exercises, study seminars, assisted study, as well as spaces dedicated to the technical-operational training of students, such as language laboratories, ICT, editing (also in specific areas such as journalism and multimedia), internships at public and private structures, internships. The interaction between teaching and training activities of a technical-applicative nature is aimed at forming, after a three-year period, professional profiles in which the implementation of traditional humanistic resources with the new knowledge is required. This wide and flexible multidisciplinary training - always based on historical, linguistic, literary, artistic and philological foundations - can be further declined in various fields through specific specializations typical of second cycle courses.Access modeItalian and foreign secondary school graduates may enroll in the Degree Program ( after verifying equivalence of their qualifications and competence in the Italian language). In general, the following basic knowledge and skills are required:- good general knowledge in the field of literary, linguistic and geo-historical disciplines;- good logical and reasoning skills;- good reading, comprehension and interpretation skills of texts and documents (in Italian);- good ability in written and oral expression in Italian;- A2 level knowledge of a European language (French, English, Spanish, German).In the initial phase of the didactic activity, students who scored lower than 80/100 in their upper secondary school diploma, will be assessed with compulsory tests to verify the aforementioned training, and their preparation in the linguistic, literary, historical and geographical fields. Students who move from another course or those who already possess a degree are not required to take any tests. If one fails the test (even at the second call in the second half of the year) students will need additional training (OFA) .To this end, individual paths will be defined.The verification of the performance of the OFA can also take place with the acquisition of a minimum of 18 university formative credits (CFU) in the basic or characterizing disciplines. If the students do not perform the OFA by the established deadline (October 31st 2020), they still have to fulfill this obligation and cannot take second-year exams until they have completed them successfully (Article 28, paragraph 5 of the Academic Regulations of University).Career opportunities and continuation of studies:First of all, the Course trains experts in the classification, processing, management and communication of the information they carry out: employment in public and private institutions, especially in the sectors dedicated to the protection and enhancement of the historical, cultural and artistic-archaeological heritage (there is normally a public competition in order to access to public bodies); cultural institutes in Italy and abroad; museums, archives and public and private libraries; press offices, publishing houses and multimedia publishing; journalistic editorials; companies and private companies for communication and information activities; area of theatrical, film and television production.Furthermore, the credits earned will allow enrollment in Master's degree courses, firstly for those in Modern Philosophy (LM-14) and Philology, Literature and History of Antiquity (LM-39), Linguistics (LM-39) , or even in a first level Master Degree Course.
