Personal preparation requirements

A good knowledge of both written and spoken English and the ability to use the main IT tools are required. This prerequisite must be attested to by the acquisition of at least 5 training credits (for English language) and at least 3 training credits (for computer skills) obtained in the relevant subject areas or through attendance of specific computer or language laboratories, or documented to by equivalent qualifications.

Ways of verifying personal preparation requirements

Students who have not acquired specific credits in the fields M-STO/08 and M-STO/09 in their previous career and/or have obtained a weighted average exam mark of less than 26/30 in their previous degree course must sit an interview.


The assessment of prerequisites will be carried out by the relevant Teaching Council (Area Didattica) of the Master's degree course on the basis of the examinations taken in the previous career or other assessable activities.

An interview will assess adequacy of knowledge in the field of history and cultures from ancient times to the Middle Ages. The candidate may only attend the interview once during a given academic year. However, the student who is not admitted may re-sit the test in the following academic year. Admission interviews will be held three times a year, in September, December, and February. Registration with deficient educational qualifications is not permitted in any case.


In order to enrol on the Master's degree course, it is necessary to apply for an evaluation of one's previous academic career within the three deadlines indicated below:
