The Department of Literary Studies, Philology and Linguistics comprises two sections ‒
Classics, and Modern Studies ‒ which share methodological and thematic approaches,
while respecting each field’s specific concerns.
The Department aims not only at promoting scientific research and teaching activities,
but also at developing relations with research centers, educational agencies, and other
institutions of higher learning, in order to consolidate its standing both in Italy and abroad.
We are convinced that it is a prime responsibility of the Humanities to build a mature
critical awareness, in order to sustain and encourage proficiency in teaching, and the skills
and knowledge much in demand in the world of intellectual professions.
