Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology
The M.Sc. in BIOEVO proposes a revised version of both the format and contents of the M.Sc. in Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology successfully activated in previous years, by introducing some variations that allow a better characterization of the specific formation in this field, a better definition of the professional profile and a deeper awareness of the real modern role of the biologist. In terms of formation, the objectives of this Master imply to deepen the basic formation in biology and related applications with particular reference to the knowledge of the organisms at all the organization levels, including their ecological aspects. The central themes of biodiversity and evolution of animals and plants are presented with specific reference to structural and functional adaptations, reproductive and developmental processes, behaviour, interactions between organisms and environment and finally current problems of evolutionary biology.
This M.Sc. programme explores a field of central interest in Biology, in which the Coordinating Board for teaching activities of the Milano University has full competence, both in terms of teaching tradition and established research expertise. Its objectives are addressed to offer an advanced preparation in the field of biodiversity and environment, and to develop specific capacities to apply the learning outcomes in biodiversity protection and conservation. In this view the central themes of this field are proposed in a format that integrates traditional and topical aspects according to an innovative approach to modern biology.
In order to be admitted to the programme, candidates must meet minimum curricular requirements and prove adequate knowledge (Ministerial Decree 270/04).
Graduates in Biological Sciences (Class L-13) fully meeting curricular requirements can access the Master's Degree Programme in BIODIVERSITY AND EVOLUTIONARY BIOLOGY, provided that their course of studies is consistent with the CBUI Italian National Board's guidelines, as duly certified.
These guidelines, provided in the CBUI model table, specify the required academic fields and the respective recommended credits (CFU): 66-96 CFU in basic biological disciplines (BIO/01, BIO/02, BIO/04, BIO/05, BIO/06, BIO/07, BIO/09, BIO/10, BIO/11, BIO/18, BIO/19); 12-15 CFU in basic non-biological chemical disciplines (CHIM/01, CHIM/02, CHIM/03, CHIM/06); 15-18 CFU in basic non-biological mathematical, physical and computer science disciplines (MAT/01-09, FIS/01-08 and INF/01).
The programme can also be accessed by graduates of the same class (L-13), who have not followed a course of studies in line with the CBUI's guidelines, or of class L-12 - Biological Sciences pursuant to Ministerial Decree 509/99, or of other classes, as long as they meet certain curricular requirements. More specifically, they must have earned an adequate number of CFU (normally not less than 93 CFU) in groups of academic fields equivalent or similar to those listed in the table for class L-13 - Biological Sciences across non-biological and basic biological disciplines, according to a quantitative logic similar to that of the above mentioned CBUI criteria. In order to meet CFU requirements, you can sit for the relevant exams at our or other universities before enrolling in the MDP.
For all categories of candidates, adequate knowledge and personal skills will be key for admission and will be assessed by an individual interview.
Students from degree programmes outside class L-13 should send their curriculum for assessment to the Academic Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) well in advance, ideally during the Bachelor's programme. Based on your curriculum, you may be required to take any additional exams before applying for enrolment.
Non-EU students with a qualification obtained abroad and residing abroad: applications will be assessed based on your qualifications, and possibly through an online interview. Non-EU citizens residing in Italy and EU citizens access university education on equal terms with Italian citizens and therefore must take the same tests.
