The three-year degree in Science and technology for nature forms naturalist’s professionals.
The course offers a cultural education oriented to a systemic view of the natural environment, described and interpreted through a good practice of the scientific method, applied to the analysis of the components and factors that underlie processes, systems and problems.
Prepares to perform detection, classification and interpretation of abiotic and biotic components present in natural ecosystems; provides the scientific basis for drawing up impact assessments and formulating management proposals, with the aim of conserving and / or improving natural systems.
The Didactic Council of Sciences and Technologies coordinate the teaching organization, governed by specific Regulations, by the Statute of the University of Pavia, by the University Educational Regulations, by the Student Regulations, for the Environment and Nature.
Lessons are organized in frontal lessons, workshops, and exercises. Of the 180 credits to be obtained to obtain the Bachelor’s degree, 6 CFU are dedicated to the curricular internship and 3 CFU to the final exam, 159 CFU are represented by basic, characterizing and similar courses, while 12 CFU are dedicated to courses free choice.
