However, in order to facilitate students attending classes , at the end of the course, is scheduled a written exam (test of about 32 questions and 4 items per question) on the first two books of the reading list (A e B).
Only students who reach a mark of at least 18/30 pass the test.
The mark obtained is valid till February 2018.
The test takes place only once a year.
The written test is aimed at verifying the acquisition of concepts and the specific vocabulary of the sociology of cultural processes.
Those who pass the written test must support a further oral examination on the remaining part of the program (letter C of bibliography). The second oral assesment (exam) will be held in the ordinary calls of June, July, September 2017 and the months of January and February 2018.
Who doesn’t take or pass the first written exam, presents the whole syllabus at the oral exams that take place in the normal sessions.
Those who do not complete the examination procedure (the oral exam on the second part of the program) before February 2019 must take the exam on the whole syllabus in oral form.

Who won't take the written must present the whole syllabus in the ordinary exams in June, July, September, January, February.
