Educational goals

The International PhD programme in English Literatures, Language and Translation (SELLT), with administrative base at Sapienza University of Rome and partner base at the University of Silesia in Katowicze, is aimed at students interested in the acquisition of up-to-date critical and cognitive tools that enable them to carry out specialised research in the field of English literature and linguistics, as well as in the cultural and disciplinary areas that may refer to them. The scientific plan and the doctoral programme are developed through three curricula: 1) LANGUAGE AND TRANSLATION CURRICULUM, 2) LITERARY CURRICULUM - ANGLO-AMERICAN LITERATURE AND CULTURE, 3) LITERARY CURRICULUM - ENGLISH LITERATURE AND CULTURE. The objectives are the acquisition of the mastery of up-to-date critical and cognitive tools enabling the elaboration of specialised research in the field of English-language literature and linguistics as well as in the cultural and disciplinary areas that may refer to them.
