Didactic activities

The PhD program includes three types of didactic activities:
- introductory courses in different areas of theoretical and experimental linguistics (mandatory in the first year);
- advanced courses;
- reading groups.
Most courses have a 10-hour duration, while reading groups have variables duration.
PhD students are encouraged to take, in addition to the mandatory introductory courses, a number of advanced courses and reading groups each year, depending on their research interests.
Moreover, the teaching plan includes further courses/seminars (mandatory) aimed at transversal training in the fields of information technology, communicative skills, research management and innovation, grant opportunities, ethics and principles of equality and integrity.
This schema guarantees the mandatory 150 hours of training over the three years.
