The course will be divided into two main parts, according to the schedule here below:
- Part A (12 hours) will consist in a survey of the interdisciplinary aspects of Germanic Philology (texual criticism and digital scholarly editing, historical linguistics, the growth of literacy in the Germanic-speaking countries);

- the issues posited by the vernacular traditions of the Middle Ages (on the instance of the Middle High German poem known as ‘Alexanderlied’);

Examination Methods

Oral exams during the official exam sessions scheduled and published by the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures.
 Assessment will include:
ATTENDEES--> ongoing preliminary test referring to the 1st part of the programme  + oral exam on the other part of the programme.
NON-ATTENDEES--> oral exam on the whole programme.
Objective of assessment
ATTENDEES--> In the middle of the course (after the 5th week), students can take a written test (which will be corrected and discussed within the class with self-evaluation), aimed at assessing students' knowledge on the introductory parts of the programme (it will deal with the first 5 weeks of classes) and the corresponding bibliography.
The intermediate written exam will be structured according to groups of questions related to the main themes of the course; the preparation of the exam will be supported by learning materials which will be prepared ad hoc. The evaluation is expressed in 30/30. The written exam will be subject to an evaluation which the student will integrate with the oral exam.
The oral exam will deal with the development of issues related to the written test and to report on it.
The oral exam will assess:
- depth and extent of acquired knowledge
- accuracy of acquired vocabulary
- ability to link aspects concerning both parts of the programme
To foster the correct understanding of the contents and of the modalities of the ongoing written test during the classes the test of last year will be discussed (it is already available on the e-learning).
NON-ATTENDEES-->The oral exam will be on the entire programme. The final evaluation is expressed in 30/30.
The oral exam will assess:
- depth and extent of acquired knowledge
- accuracy of acquired vocabulary
- ability to link aspects concerning both parts of the programme
Erasmus students are kindly requested to contact the instructor at the beginning of the course to arrange both learning and assessment modalities.

Double degree

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.

Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.

The latest Call for applications for Double/Joint Degrees at the University of Verona is available now!
