Course of study in brief

Graduates in Arts and Humanities should have an academic preparation that will allow them to know and make known, by way of critical analysis, the “cultural products” of humanity throughout the various historical epochs of mankind: language, literature and other forms of communication (e.g. music, theatre, etc.), fine arts, history of the various eras, and the environment in so far as it is modified by man (human geography). The attainment of such a preparation is the basic educational objective of this degree course in Arts and Humanities at the University of Verona. Thus graduates in Arts and Humanities should: • acquire complete mastery of the Italian language, both spoken and written, with the capacity to apply this knowledge to a wide range of fields (cultural, communicative, and professional); • acquire a sold methodological and historical foundation in the study of linguistics philology, history and art history; • acquire a solid knowledge of historical and anthropological issues as well as the culture of Italian literature, philology, linguistics and fine arts, from classical antiquity to the contemporary era within the European context and by way of a direct understanding of original texts and documents; • acquire the ability to use automated information systems and information technology as applied to this field of study; • acquire the ability to approach issues related to literature, history and fine arts in a context that recognizes and integrates ethnic, cultural and genre differences; • develop appropriate abilities of communication and interpersonal relations with an awareness of ethnic, cultural and genre differences. With the aim of allowing graduates in Arts and Humanities to deepen their knowledge in a specific cultural field, as well as in relation to graduates eventually enrolling for a postgraduate degree, this undergraduate programme is divided into courses whose objectives are extensively defined in the Undergraduate Degree Regulations. In relation to the general aims of the course of study as well as those of the individual academic courses, the degree course in Arts and Humanities distributes what is offered within the three-year degree period according to the following criteria: • the first year - and this holds true for all courses - accentuates propaedeutical elements with the aim of providing knowledge, abilities and competencies which are fundamental to the knowledge-acquisition of the history of literature, philology, the foundations of history, as well as humanistic geography; • the second year, though it still assigns a significant number of credits to foundational knowledge, does give space to some specialised elements, which will vary depending on the chosen course of study; • the third year is nearly entirely dedicated to the specializations of the chosen course of study and to preparation for the final exam.
 

Degree programme annual factsheet (SUA-CdS)

As part of the Quality Assurance system, complete, updated and easily available information on objectives, study plan, resources used and results achieved for each degree programme is made available through the SUA-CdS - Scheda Unica Annuale del Corso di Studio (Degree programme annual factsheet). This includes an Overview and three public sections (Learning Objectives, Student Experience, Learning Outcomes) which together provide a wide range of information about each degree programme. The SUA-CdS also contains an administrative section (Administration and Quality Management) that is for internal use only.

The Degree programme annual factsheet (SUA-CdS), which is currently available only in Italian, is a valuable tool that can be used by the University to design, implement and reorganise, as well as to evaluate, each degree programme. However, the SUA-CdS factsheet is also useful for students, to help them choose the right programme of study.

I laureati in Lettere devono acquisire una preparazione che permetta loro di conoscere e di far conoscere criticamente i «prodotti culturali» dell'umanità, nelle varie epoche della sua storia: il linguaggio, la letteratura e le altre forme di comunicazione (musica, spettacolo, ecc.), l'arte, la storia (dei vari periodi), il territorio in quanto plasmato dall'uomo (geografia umana). In sintesi:
- acquisire la piena padronanza della lingua italiana (orale e scritta);
- acquisire una solida padronanza della lingua latina e (per gli studenti che scelgano un indirizzo di studi classico) della lingua greca;
- acquisire una solida formazione di base, metodologica e storica, negli studi linguistici, filologici, letterari, geografici, storici e storico-artistici e nell'ambito delle discipline dello spettacolo;
- acquisire la piena padronanza scritta e orale di almeno una lingua dell'Unione Europea, oltre l'italiano;
- acquisire la capacità di utilizzare gli strumenti informatici e della comunicazione telematica, negli ambiti specifici di applicazione;
- sviluppare adeguate capacità di comunicazione e di relazione, nella consapevolezza delle differenze etniche, culturali e di genere.

Descrizione del percorso formativo
Gli insegnamenti sono articolati in due aree, una linguistica e letteraria e una storica, archeologica, artistica e geografica; alle due aree corrispondono due percorsi formativi (letterario e storico), tali tuttavia da garantire a ciascuno studente un numero di CFU che gli consenta ad una laurea magistrale di ambito letterario o storico (LM14 o LM84).
Alcuni insegnamenti del corso di laurea in Lettere sono articolati in modulo introduttivo e modulo progredito; sono inoltre previsti, nell'arco dei tre anni, laboratori obbligatori di composizione italiana, latino e informatica umanistica per accompagnare i relativi insegnamenti e fornire strumenti adeguati per l'avviamento ad autonome attività di studio e ricerca.
In relazione alle finalità generali del corso di studio e a quelle specifiche dei percorsi, il Corso di laurea in Lettere distribuisce l'offerta formativa complessiva prevista all'interno del triennio secondo una scansione progressiva dei contenuti disciplinari e dei rispettivi obiettivi formativi:
- il primo anno, comune ai due percorsi, presenta accentuate caratteristiche propedeutiche ed ha lo scopo di fornire conoscenze, capacità e competenze relative alla formazione storico-letteraria, filologica, linguistica e storica di base, nonché riguardo alla geografia antropica;
- il secondo anno, pur assegnando ancora un significativo numero di crediti alla formazione di base (nell'ambito della geografia, della lingua e letteratura latina, della linguistica e filologia antica, della storia), lascia spazio ad alcune specificazioni caratterizzanti, che variano in base al percorso scelto: nel percorso letterario lo studente approfondisce l'area delle letterature antiche (latino e greco), medievali, moderne, anche attraverso le metodologie di studio specifiche della linguistica e della filologia; nel percorso storico lo studente approfondisce l'area delle discipline storiche e antropologiche, anche in relazione alle rispettive metodologie di studio;
- il terzo anno è quasi interamente dedicato alle discipline caratterizzanti del percorso scelto: nel percorso letterario prevalgono gli insegnamenti filologici e letterari, nel percorso storico quelli storici. In entrambi i percorsi le discipline caratterizzanti guideranno inoltre gli studenti nella preparazione dell'elaborato finale. Sia nel percorso letterario che in quello storico viene riservato uno spazio specifico per una letteratura straniera a scelta dello studente.

In a Quality Assurance system, students play a fundamental role: each student can play their part by participating in the Quality Assurance groups of their degree programme and in the Faculty-Student Joint Committees or, more simply, by taking part in the Student Survey on teaching, or questionnaires. It’s in this context that specific workshops for student representatives (‘Laboratori di rappresentanza attiva’) are periodically made available to students by the University and the University’s Quality Assurance Board. To find out more, please see the relevant section.

Other useful things

Crediti Formativi Universitari (CFU/ECTS credits): Italian university courses are based on the CFU system. 1 CFU is equal to 25 hours of study. The average annual academic workload for a full-time student is generally assumed to be 60 CFU. CFU and ECTS credits serve the same purpose and generally have the same value.
Degree class: Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes that have the same learning objectives and activities are grouped into “degree classes". The educational content of each programme is set autonomously by each university; however, universities are required to include certain educational activities (and the corresponding number of CFU credits) set at the national level. These requirements are established in relation to each degree class. Degrees in the same class have the same legal value.
Double/Joint degrees: the Italian universities may establish degree programmes in partnership with other Italian or foreign universities. Upon completion of these courses, graduates are awarded a joint or double/multiple degree, one from each Partner University.
