In the 34 years of its running, Italian Studies Ph.D. at "La Sapienza" University has represented an important reference point - not only in the Italian context but also abroad - for research training in fields which are relevant to the study of Italian Literature and literary cultures since the Middle Ages, both in the Italian Language and in the other languages of Italian Literature (such as Latin and Italian dialects).
The Roma Tre – Sapienza PhD joint program in Linguistics aims to provide PhD students with a solid and up-to-date knowledge on main topics concerning languages and how they work across time and space (from the diachronic perspective, related to the Indo-European languages or to the Italian language, to synchronic theoretical and applied approaches, with reference to the different languages of the world but also to Italian).
The Ph.D. Program is focused on language, texts and documents, considering all their implications and aspects (linguistic, philological, material, etc.). The program includes specific curricula covering Archive, Library and Information Science, theory of Language, general linguistics and language education, Russian linguistics and culture, historical and philological literary studies, geography and gender studies. The PhD program aims to provide graduate students with in-depth and up-to-date knowledge on the major issues related to language and documents (written as well as audiovisual and digital) and to material and immaterial heritage and is characterized by the attention to interdisciplinarity, to the most innovative areas of research in the various fields and to internationalization. The PhD program is recognized as a leader program in various fields and involved in international cooperation, as shown by the provenance of applications from several Italian universities and from many other countries, as well as from qualified public servants.
