What will you study
The Course has a duration of two years during which you will have to acquire 120 course credits (CFUs) (usually 60 per year).
The academic year is organized into two lecture periods, interspersed with about a month of teaching break: the first semester runs from October to mid-January and the second from February to June.
No curricula are provided.
The first year is devoted to compulsory teaching, which, in addition to lectures, includes many practical and laboratory activities. The aforementioned teachings consist of both advanced modules related to basic disciplines and modules with application value in the field of Naturalistic Land Management. At the end of the first year you will be able to choose the Curricular Internship (5 CFU) which is an important opportunity to direct your scientific training and gain experience in the professional field. You will be able to start preparing your thesis already having a portion of credits from the curriculum (8 CFUs).
In second year you will take five compulsory courses, and the rest of the time you will be able to devote yourself to the free-choice courses such as forensic botany, elements of geopedology, mycology, ethology, urban wildlife management (12 CFU total) and continue the preparation of the Dissertation, for which a significant portion of teaching credits are reserved (16 CFU). During the second year, you will attend seminars given by foreign faculty and present your Thesis in English in a seminar given by all undergraduates and aimed at students and faculty in the Department. You will then be able to improve your communication skills in English as well. and you will be able to constitute important opportunities to prepare yourself for possible employment opportunities, either in science or in the fields of natural resource management.
