Characteristics of the final test
The final examination consists of a self-written paper on a topic assigned by the Professor that the student will choose in order to conclude his or her thesis under the Professor's supervision.
The thesis work consists of an in-depth theoretical and empirical study of the teaching content provided by the Professor, who acts as supervisor.
The student's dissertation, once approved by the supervisor, is presented in oral form to Degree Committee, whose task is to assess the student's level of knowledge and understanding of the subject matter, the ability to apply this knowledge and understanding to the specific problem covered by the work, the ability to communicate in written form (with the dissertation) and orally (the presentation) and finally the degree of autonomy of judgement on the issues covered by the dissertation. The preliminary committee's judgement is then forwarded to the Degree Committee, which assesses the student's career and calculates the final grade expressed in hundredths according to the criteria set out in the next section.
