The degree program in “Letteratura” is open to all those who have a strong interest in the deepening and transmission of humanistic culture (historical, linguistic and literary, artistic and performative), within broad geographical and temporal coordinates.
The main training objective is the acquisition of a critical instrumentation that is fully adequate for a historical and contextual reading of the various types of phenomena pertaining to the cultural areas indicated above.

However, non-selective entrance tests are planned, aimed at evaluating the knowledge already possessed and in guiding the students who may be recognized as having a deficit in a specific didactics, concentrated in the first year.

A first level degree in Lettere cannot and does not intend to have a professional character, but it is proposed as an essentially methodological training path, in order to associate adequate verbal and written communication skills to a broad basic humanistic culture.
The employment outlets will therefore have to be described according to the inevitably prolonged perspective of a complete course of university studies (three-year course in Humanities + Master’s Degree in Humanities).
In this perspective, the possible occupations may be: teaching (in middle schools), protection and promotion of archaeological and historical-artistic heritage and tourism (in the public and private spheres, also in the form of service cooperatives), management of libraries and archives, editorial work in publishing houses and newspapers, organization of exhibitions and shows, relations with staff in companies and public relations.
A degree in Lettere may also be the first stage of an academic course that, after obtaining a Master’s Degree, will find further development in a research doctorate and then, eventually, in university teaching.
