Programme structure

Through a broad range of lectures and laboratories held both on the university campus and in the field, the programme’s study plan prepares you to be a professional capable of working in the prevention, diagnosis, evaluation, management and/or resolution of environmental problems, whether locally, nationally or globally.

The programme offers you three paths, or curricula, to choose from:

  • Global Change and Sustainability (fully taught in English)
  • Natural Capital and Ecosystem Services (taught in Italian)
  • Monitoring and Environmental Rehabilitation (taught in Italian)

The English-taught curriculum dedicated to Global Change and Sustainability focuses on preparing you to analyse major changes on a global scale, with particular reference to climate change. The programme combines bio-ecological, oceanographic, climatological, paleo-climatic, socio-economic aspects and statistical analysis and environmental modelling tools, providing an integrated interpretation of the reality of the global changes taking place during the current geological age. Thanks to this approach, you acquire the tools you need to predict and evaluate future scenarios of change as well as plan actions designed to mitigate impact.
