The SRISS is a postgraduate intensive programme which has been assigned 6 credits (ECTS) for its learning outcomes and workload. It is specifically designed to fit any MA curriculum and meet international teaching standards. It is also meant for Doctoral and Post-Doctoral students, as well as high-school teachers.
The number of students admitted is limited to a maximum of 30.
The course is taught in English and its syllabus includes subjects like Shakespearean Studies, Theatre and Performance Studies, Film and Media Studies, Roman and Renaissance Art History, Roman History, Gender Studies, Literary Criticism and Text Analysis.
Requirements evaluated for admission
1) Bachelor’s degree or other international superior titles;
2) A letter of motivation;
3) An appropriate level of English language proficiency (B2/C1).
Learning objectives of the Course
The course aims at developing specific competencies on the Roman Shakespeare subject, and at providing students with methodological tools that will enable them to address such field of study through an intercultural, interdisciplinary and intermedial critical perspective.
Admitted students are required to read specific preparatory materials that will be provided in due time and assessed before the start of the SRISS course. Assessment will be completed by the delivery of a research paper. A positive assessment gives access to a Roma Tre SRISS Certificate (to be downloaded from the Roma Tre Student’s account) stating, in English and Italian, that the student has successfully earned 6 ECTS.
Possible uses of the acquired competencies
The knowledge and skills acquired during the SRISS are meant to be useful for the students’ future studies, academic research, the teaching in the Humanities field or professional activities related to the theatre, cultural heritage and intercultural communication (publishing, journalism, promotion of cultural events).
