Programme profile

The degree programme provides students with the means of observing, describing and interpreting the natural systems of the Earth and universe, applying the scientific method to the physical realm and the biosphere. It aims to produce graduates capable of sampling, classifying, analysing, repairing and preserving physical and biotic components of natural, aquatic and land ecosystems in parks and nature reserves, and working as experts in science museums and education centres. One of the prime purposes of the degree programme is to train its graduates to become teachers of and educators in natural science via centres designed for the purpose: museums, parks, protected zones and nature reserves. The programme supplies the scientific and theoretical/practical basis that a naturalist needs within environmental milieus and in teaching in the broad sense. It also provides a methodological and scientific grounding for lifelong learning and the basic methods required for research into natural science. The training programme in the various subjects includes laboratory practicals and field work, with a focus on experimental methods and data processing. In relation to specific objectives, too, there is an obligatory curriculum internship to be done with a company or public office or at a laboratory. Study is also scheduled at other Italian universities, as well as in Europe or further afield, as part of international agreements.
