What we study
At "La Statale" we study many different disciplines covering three major areas of knowledge. The classification into Life Science LS, Social Sciences and Humanities SH and Physical Sciences and Engineering PE is that used by the European Research Council, the leading research funding body in Europe.
Studies in this field aim at increasing understanding of life mechanisms and find application in fields such as healthcare, agriculture, pharmaceuticals and the food industry.
Life Science includes scientific disciplines that study organisms, such as plants, animals, humans and microorganisms. It also includes study of the social and ethical effects of this area of research, as in the case of bioethics.
The social sciences and humanities are concerned with humans and society, the origin and development of human societies, the institutions, social relations and foundations of society.
Physical Sciences and Engineering include mathematics, physics, information and communications science and technology, engineering, earth science and astrophysics.
