The program is designed for both European and non-European students who have a) already completed a high school degree (180 ECTS) that gives access to college and who b) have taken courses from among the following disciplines: literature, languages (expression techniques, linguistics and language sciences, philology), history, or art history. The knowledge of English (at a minimum B1 level) is mandatory, as is the knowledge of the language of the first consortium university in which the student plans to study during the first year of the program (at a minimum B1 level).The CLE program is characterized by a) a joint program with learning validation (120 ECTS); b) mandatory trans-national mobility, with validation of all activities and a multiple diploma, presented by the universities of the consortium; c) top quality formation in literature, art history, philosophy, history, informatics, and specific seminars related to the business world and d) the knowledge of at least three European languages (among French, English, Italian and Greek). The programme is divided in four main training units, namely European literatures (Unit 1); Languages, Methodology and Language Sciences (Unit 2); European History and Civilisation (Unit 3) and a last unit (Unit 4) devoted to the elaboration of the master's thesis and the contact with institutions and enterprises. Career prospectsThe University of Sciences and Humanities of Moscow (Russia) and the University of Lisboa (Portugal) are associated partners at this point. Constant collaboration with the business world guarantees a focused training process: publishing houses, national institutions; commercial enterprises, associations, libraries, writing schools and cultural institutes collaborate with the universities to propose theoretic training and its practical implementation. Thus, the main career perspectives for CLE graduates are related to the academia and the doctoral research, the European cultural institutions or local authorities involving cultural programmes and the private sector in tasks related to multicultural and book-related skills, journalism, media, etc.An international experienceCLE students are required to proof their knowledge of English and the language of the first consortium university to access the programme. They study in an international environment with students and high profile scholars and guest lecturers from all over the world. Also, the students are prepared through seminars on multicultural issues, while living and working together as a group through theatrical performances, writing exercises and carrying out cultural field trips. They are furthermore led to respect others through group meals in which the traditions of the varying countries represented by the students themselves are brought to the fore. Thus they are better prepared for international competition with their knowledge and capability of interacting across nationalities.DiplomaCLE students receive a double or multiple degree awarded by the relevant universities to each student.Websitehttp://www.cle.unibo.it/site/
