Minor - Interdisciplinary programmes to enrich your curriculum

Minors are optional interdisciplinary programmes, separate from degree programmes, that allow you to acquire skills useful for your future studies and to enter the world of work.

The programmes are centred around topical subjects addressed with an interdisciplinary approach and by combining traditional learning activities with new innovative methods, alternating lessons and seminars, multimedia materials and group projects.

For the academic year 2021/2022 our Department has participated to “The challenge of climate change” and “Learning from data”.
