Academic Year 2021-22- A course for everyone to learn about sustainability 

Starting from the 2019-20 academic year, all our students, enrolled in any degree programme, can follow an inter-faculty course on Sustainability Sciences. The course aims to introduce sustainability as an element of cultural progress in society and to deepen the possible applications of sustainable models in different disciplinary fields.

Students can choose to attend only the basic course, which allows the acquisition of 3 credits, or they can choose to attend the basic course plus a specific course for the acquisition of additional 3 credits (6 credits altogether).

Each Faculty organises the specific courses autonomously, with the contribution of all Sapienza professors.
The course can also be attended by external users, e.g. company employees, as a university training course.
