The degree programme is aimed at developing a series of basic theoretical and scientific skills and high-level practical skills in foreign languages and literature. The international dimension of the training offered is ensured by the increasing number of subjects taught in foreign languages, by promotion of study periods abroad, mobility programmes, frequent activities involving visiting professors, talks by writers and scholars from other countries, congresses and cultural initiatives in collaboration with foreign institutions.

The teaching of languages, combined with notions of theoretical and applied linguistics, is accompanied by literary studies with diachronic and synchronic courses and an eye to increasing world interest in European languages and literature, providing a solid humanistic grounding. Courses can be personalised not only in terms of the languages and literature studied in the first three years, but also by other options in a wide range of disciplines.

Graduates will have a useful range of language, literary and cultural skills for various occupations, especially those requiring oral and written mastery of foreign languages and a solid humanistic grounding.

These areas include private firms, public bodies and international organisations. Familiarity with different cultures favours work in the sphere of events (fairs, congresses, expositions, cultural events) and in sectors linked to the organisation and management of tourist activities, travel and linguistic/cultural stays.

Language skills, cultural heritage and familiarity with information source management and consultation favour work in varied areas such as libraries, exposition centres, communications and marketing, personnel selection services, publishing houses, translation and website and portal localization agencies.

Application and admission: Limited enrolment with admission test.

Admission depends on passing a test (TOLC-SU, Test OnLine CISIA, www.cisiaonline.it ); the score combined with the Secondary school pass are used to rank applicants.

The test assesses knowledge and skills of students applying to enrol in Humanities programmes and can be sat for in various universities according to their calendars.

Students can choose the two languages to study, for which there are practical classes down to beginner level, from the list of all languages offered, except English, for which applicants must take a specific test of English proficiency.

In the case of failure, the student cannot choose English but can in any case enrol in two other languages.

Highly recommended, not mandatory

f - 12 CFU LIBERI

Questi crediti verranno destinati a due insegnamenti da 6 CFU liberamente scelti tra tutti quelli del Corso di Laurea o degli altri Corsi di Laurea della Facoltà di Studi Umanistici, anche se si raccomanda di effettuare delle scelte coerenti con il percorso formativo in Lingue e letterature straniere e con gli studi umanistici.
In alternativa, è possibile impiegare 3 di questi CFU liberi per elevare a 9 CFU uno degli esami d'area, laddove previsto dal singolo corso; oppure, è possibile impiegare 6 di questi CFU liberi per elevare a 9 entrambi gli esami d'area, laddove previsto dai corsi scelti. In tal caso i 9 o 6 CFU liberi rimasti dovranno essere utilizzati necessariamente per un unico esame. È possibile inserire tra i CFU liberi un esame di una terza lingua o letteratura straniera (di norma la prima annualità), sempre e comunque per 9 CFU. Nessun esame previsto dalla laurea triennale può essere reiterato, nemmeno utilizzando i CFU liberi.


6 CFU

I Laboratori sono corsi di breve durata, con un numero ristretto di partecipanti e specifiche regole di iscrizione, che erogano 3 CFU ciascuno. Il piano di studi di Lingue e letterature straniere richiede l'inserimento di 6 CFU di questa tipologia, acquisibili tramite: laboratori offerti dalla Facoltà di Studi Umanistici, ulteriori conoscenze linguistiche opportunamente attestate, tirocini formativi e di orientamento, altre conoscenze utili per l'inserimento nel mondo del lavoro, stage o tirocini presso imprese, enti pubblici o privati. Ogni attività può essere inserito una sola volta nel piano di studi. Gli studenti di Lingue e letterature straniere possono accedere a tutti i laboratori proposti dalla Facoltà di Studi Umanistici, purché dispongano degli eventuali prerequisiti indicati da ognuno, nonché alle attività sostitutive di laboratorio organizzate dal Corso di Studio e pubblicizzate sul sito del Dipartimento di Lingue.



ELENCO DELLE PROPEDEUTICITÀ

Alcuni insegnamenti sono considerati propedeutici ad altri, ovvero devono essere sostenuti secondo un preciso ordine, pena l'annullamento da parte della Segreteria.

- Esami di Lingue straniere: tutti gli esami del primo anno sono propedeutici a quelli del secondo, e questi a loro volta a quelli del terzo
- Esami di Letterature straniere: come sopra
- Glottologia deve essere sostenuto prima di Filologia
