Biogeosciences: analysis of ecosystem and science communication
The requirements for the admission to the Master in BioGeosciences: Ecosystem Analysis and Science Communication are fully met by graduates of the degree class in Sciences and Technologies for the Environment and Nature (L-32) and corresponding class related to DM 509/99. Students that have a degree in another class, as well as those who have other qualifications obtained abroad and recognized as eligible, can also be admitted to the master's degree program, provided that they have the curricular requisites and the competence necessary to successfully participate to the Master’s Degree, as specified below.
Students with a qualification obtained abroad will be evaluated by the Admission Commission for the master's degree on the basis of their curriculum (type of bachelor degree, bachelor's study program) and through an interview (online, if needed) aimed at ascertaining possession of specific curricular requirements and their personal preparation. The date of the interview is indicated in the “Manifesto degli Studi” and it is the date in which all students will be evaluated.
Students who have obtained a degree in Italy in classes other than L-32, must have the following curricular requirements for the admission to the Master's Degree:
- at least 6 ECTS in each of these disciplines: mathematical, physical,and chemical disciplines,
- and at least 60 ECTS in the following areas: agricultural disciplines, biological disciplines, ecological disciplines and Earth Sciences. Of these 60 ECTS, the student must have acquired at least 6 ECTS in biological disciplines, 6 ECTS in ecological disciplines and 6 ECTS in Earth Sciences.
The personal preparation of all the candidates will be verified trough an interview carried out by a commission of professors appointed by the Interdepartmental Teaching Council. To access the Master's Degree program an adequate basic training in biological (general biology and histology, zoology and botany), geological (geology, paleontology, mineralogy, petrography, geomorphology) and ecological disciplines is required.
During the interview, the adequacy of the curriculum of previous studies and the individual preparation of the candidate will be assessed.
Students with a negative result in the interview cannot be admitted to the Master's Degree program in the current year.
For the academic year 2020/2021, the date for the interview is September 15, 2020 at 10:00 (https://scienzenaturali.cdl.unimi.it/it).
