The SRISS is an international intensive programme which has been assigned 6 credits (ECTS) for its learning outcomes and workload.

For the fourth edition of the SRISS two curricula are available: one for undergraduate students (BA) and one for post-graduate students (MA, PhDs, Postdocs, ESL teachers).

They are both specifically designed to fit any BA or MA curriculum and meet international teaching standards. The Post-graduate curriculum 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 (only for the Post-graduate curriculum);

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.


Assessment procedures

Admitted students are required to read specific preparatory materials that will be provided in due time and assessed before the beginning of the SRISS course. Assessment will be completed by the delivery of an academic paper (3500 words for postgraduate students and 1500 words for undergraduate students). 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).
