If the result of the test is negative, the student can enroll, but he/she receives a supplementary educational debt (OFA), which means that the student must fill any gaps in his/ her background through specific activities organized by the University.

More information on OFA for this programme is available on the webpage dedicated to admission requirements.

Occupational profiles

The Bachelor’s Degree programme offers the basic training that guarantees students the foundation to training courses for secondary school teaching for first and second grade; furthermore, the acquired skills allow students to offer their professional collaboration to public and private companies that deal with: professional training, editorial activity (traditional or online), communication (in a broad sense) and the evaluation and spread of well-being.



Examination assessment and graduation

Learning activities comprise taught courses, tests/seminars, workshop-based activities and internships; acquisition of competencies is tested by means of written and oral exams.

The final exam requires students to prepare a paper under the guidance of a supervisor on a theme of relevance to the contents of their studies (in the form of a critical re-examination of a problem, an annotated bibliography, a partial/complete critical edition or analysis of a text, a source or a historical/modern documentary corpus).
