The degree course Human Science of Environment, Landscape and Territory is designed to provide graduates with advanced competences in different aspects of the geographical sciences, both anthropic and naturalistic, and their various fields of application. In addition, it offers students a fundamental theoretical and methodological basis in the geophysical, botanical, psychological, anthropological, legal, economic, social, historic, literary, artistic and architectonic disciplines required for the scientific analysis, evaluation, interpretation and representation of land systems and the cultural landscape, and for assessing forms of human usage and the environmental and social impact of anthropic intervention on land systems.

These competences are underpinned by training in foreign languages and in the main computer and cartographic representation tools required for the transmission and management of information within the various spheres of competence. Students also acquire competences in the exchange and management of information.

The degree programme is also designed to provide graduates with the competences and analytical and interpretive tools, specific to geography and the natural and human environmental sciences, required for the interpretation, representation and communication of phenomena connected with the construction and development of the environment, land, landscapes, cultures and societies, and for the identification and evaluation of material and immaterial elements that merit cultural and tourist attention. The course also equips students with specific competences in the field of intercultural mediation and in the development and evaluation of international cooperation projects.

Graduates can pursue the following career opportunities and professional roles:

  • roles within public and private entities that employ professional figures equipped with the specific competences provided by the degree course, in relation to the environment, land and landscape;
  • sectors engaged in land representation, communication and analysis;
  • sectors engaged in the identification and optimisation of resources, the certification of products and the environment, and their impact on economic and political phenomena;
  • sectors engaged in promotion of cultural and naturalistic tourism, processes relating to interculturality;
  • specialist publishing.

The degree programme also includes a fixed amount of training geared at enabling students to develop practical competences in the cultural and environmental services.

 

Application and admission: Open. 

There is a test to verify the candidates’ initial knowledge, which must be taken before enrollment. The verification is carried out through the TOLC-SU test (CISIA OnLine Test, www.cisiaonline.it ).
