In accordance with the orientations shared at national and European level by the professional scientific community of psychologists, students of the three-year course in Psychological Sciences and Techniques will acquire a solid basic preparation in the main areas of psychology, in the methodologies and techniques used in psychological research and, partly, in the field of professional psychology. The training pathway will be completed over the three-year period with the acquisition of knowledge and techniques from disciplinary fields related and supplementary to the psychological subjects, with particular reference to the psychobiological and neuroscientific knowledge underlying normal and pathological mental activity during the development stage and adulthood, in both individual and social contexts.
The training course utilises a mixed teaching methodology and is geared towards the acquisition of an adequate mastery of methods and knowledge, which is the prerequisite for the subsequent in-depth studies and professional applications characterising second-cycle degrees in the Psychology field. At the end of the three-year period, graduates will therefore possess a set of basic knowledge in the main areas of psychology, primarily to enable them to continue their training path towards the profession of psychologist through the achievement of the second cycle degree course, and the subsequent qualification to exercise the profession.
Three-year graduates who have passed the State Examination and obtained the qualification will be able to - under the supervision of a Register A psychologist holding a five-year degree or equivalent - find professional opportunities within public and private institutions and bodies which investigate mental and behavioural processes, carry out interventions aimed at improving learning, communication and health care methods, perform assessment functions in developmental age and identify emerging forms of distress and orientation, work in the field of direct services to individuals, groups, organisations and the community, and work in the selection process and assessment of skills, performance and potential. The three-year degree in psychological sciences and techniques provides the scientific and technical skills to be spent in the following professional fields: information acquisition technicians (3.3.1.3.1), professional interviewers and surveyors (3.3.1.3.2), social reintegration and integration technicians (3.4.5.2.0), employment service technicians (3.4.5.3.0).

Speech therapists carry out activities aimed at the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of pathologies and functional alterations that cause voice, speech, oral and written language, calculation, swallowing and communication disabilities in the various age groups (developmental, adult and geriatric). Communication, especially verbal communication, is related to the development of neuropsychological skills, perceptual, cognitive and control systems, which are studied in depth on the degree course, as they are fundamental to the understanding of patients' clinical pictures. The scope of intervention of a speech therapist is very broad and covers pathologies and disorders with different aetiologies (organic, functional and psychological). The tools used range from educational, play and health materials to digital and high-tech tools. It is therefore clear that the rehabilitation techniques that the student will learn over the three years will be wide ranging and specific to each area of intervention.

The University of Parma is among the oldest academic institutions in Europe. After the foundation of the Palatine School by Charlemagne and Alcuin of York in 781 A.D., on March 13th 962 A.D. emperor Otto I conferred to the Bishop of Parma, Uberto, the power to order and elect legal leaders, with an Empire-wide authority. The historian Ernest Dümmler defined Parma a 'celebrated seat of learning' since the 11th century, attracting students from countries beyond the Alps, and its growing popularity was so high that Napoleon maximised its jurisdiction.

The Medical School of the University of Parma has now decided to develop this European and international vocation by opening a novel Medicine & Surgery course, entirely held in English, in the nearby city of Piacenza, which offers a hospital system that is not shared with other medical courses but will be uniquely dedicated to the new medical degree.

Students will develop a comprehensive medical knowledge, from health promotion to emergency medicine, from applied research to the latest medical technologies to health economics and management.

The Second-cycle degree course in Ecology and Ethology for Nature Conservation is aimed at training professionals and researchers with a sound knowledge of the basic issues in Ecology and Ethology for Nature Management and Conservation in the current scenario of global climate and environmental changes.

Second-cycle graduates in Ecology and Ethology for Nature Conservation have employment prospects in the private and public sectors dealing with the management of natural resources, the conservation of biodiversity and issues relating to man's coexistence with wild and domestic animals.
The programme of study is consistent with the ministerial tables for Second-cycle degrees in the field of biology (LM6) and the field of natural sciences (LM60). It allows, after a state examination, registration in the Register of Biologists. For this reason, the course is an outlet for both students from first-cycle degrees in Biological Sciences and Natural and Environmental Sciences who are interested in acquiring knowledge and professionalism for the proper management of natural populations and communities in a context of global change.
The programme of study includes, in the first year, the teaching of basic subjects, common to both ecology and ethology, supplemented by practical exercises: statistical analysis, geobotany, geology, paleoclimatology and ecology and ethology. In the second year, the more characterising and specialised subjects of the addresses are explored in depth. The internship and the dissertation play a very important role in the teaching process as students are guided on a path leading to the realisation of a real individual research project. The thesis seminars represent an innovative aspect of the teaching characterising this degree course. They allow the progress of the research project to be monitored, from the state of the art, through to the practical implementation of experiments in nature or in the laboratory, to the collection and critical analysis of data and their interpretation. This can also be done in research institutions outside the university (parks, museums, companies) and abroad with international exchange programmes.

The degree course in Translational Biomedical Sciences (TBS) belongs to the the Chemistry, Life Sciences and Environmental Sustainability Department, selected by the MUR as a 'Department of Excellence' and supported with an outstanding five-year grant. Also for this reason, TBS is able to offer you solid and up-to-date theoretical and methodological tools to competently perform as a professional biologist.

Studying and graduating in TBS means acquiring the cultural and methodological foundations necessary to deal, with an integrated approach, with the vital processes that characterise a complex organism like humans being under normal and pathological conditions. Using an integrated approach means studying a vital function through progressively greater levels of complexity, starting with the molecular/cellular mechanisms that are the essential 'building blocks' of a function, and moving on to the organs, the systems and up to the whole organism. An organism lives, behaves, adapts to its environment, falls ill, heals and ages.

Especially from the perspective of safeguarding human health, dealing with biomedicine is a fascinating task, but also a rather complex one. Therefore, those involved in applied biology in medicine must not only draw deeply and constantly on the most modern and multidisciplinary scientific knowledge, but also develop the ability to use it critically and with a sense of responsibility.

The TBS degree course has therefore the ambitious goal of providing articulated knowledge and skills. This is a goal we try to achieve by providing students with a solid and integrated cultural background in basic biology and the various fields of applied biology, and also by trying to transfer methodological and instrumental skills to collect, analyse and interpret experimental data. Morover, we aim to help our students build the capacity to work independently, moving from initial imitator-executors to professionals, who are capable of taking responsibility and leadership and valuing teamwork.

If you are looking for a Second Cycle Degree Course at the forefront of the modern food sciences, and you want to acquire the ability to face the challenges posed by the modern food systems and learn deep skills in managing the safety of what we eat, we propose to you to become a Food Safety expert. It's possible through a regional course, fully taught in English, offered by a network formed by Universities of Parma, Bologna, Cattolica of Piacenza, Modena and Reggio Emilia, Ferrara. Emilia-Romagna region and, in particular, the Parma District represent an integrated ecosystem of food industries, research centres and public institutions fully dedicated to food (for this reason it's called 'food valley') and is the headquarter of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). Foods have a direct impact on human health and well-being. They are the main way in which our body comes into contact with the external environment and with millions of different compounds. It becomes therefore essential for companies, control bodies and research centres to form specific figures dedicated to risk assessment and management of food risks. The Food Safety expert has a knowledge of European legislation in the sector and is linked to the global market, which poses logistical challenges and makes the guarantees on ingredients of the food chain less robust, leading to new safety risks.

Marketing activity has increasingly taken on a dual configuration: that of Consumer Marketing and that of Trade Marketing. The first refers to marketing strategies oriented towards the final demand (consumer), while the second refers to marketing strategies oriented towards the intermediate demand (commercial distribution).

With this in mind, the Second-cycle degree course in 'Trade and Consumer Marketing' (TRADE) was created in 2005 to train specific skills for the management of companies' market policies. TRADE has become the first Second-cycle degree in Italy in terms of specialised coverage of the different aspects of marketing, with a range of 11 marketing classes, numerous workshops and free lectures dedicated to frontier aspects of marketing. In order to communicate this variety of content to Italian students, the degree course has abandoned its old name of 'Trade Marketing and Commercial Strategies' and is now called 'Trade and Consumer Marketing'. For everyone, it remains and will always be 'TRADE'.

- a third introductory year in modern physics, which includes, among other things, a number of electives in various areas such as theoretical physics, the physics of matter, biophysics and physical technologies. Students have the possibility to create different, fully customisable learning paths.
Students enrolled in the third year may request to replace a course unit of their choice with an internship in private companies or public facilities with which they have an agreement.

Thanks to extensive laboratory teaching, they also develop operational skills that enable them to use scientific instrumentation and computer techniques, and to acquire and analyse data.
