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.

Functional and Sustainable Materials is an interdisciplinary M.Sc. program in Materials Science that aims at developing a broad training in the chemistry and physics of materials with a special emphasis on their application in the circular economy. 

This program was built on decades of successful collaboration between the physicists and chemists at the University of Parma in both research and education. The success of this collaboration is demonstrated by the prestigious recognition of the Department of Chemistry, Life Sciences and Environmental Sustainability with two back-to-back “Department of Excellence” awards which have support our research and education activities with state-of-the-art scientific infrastructure and scholarships to attract motivated students.

The goal of this program is to create professionals that understand the challenges of building a circular economy from its physical and chemical roots up to their application in the real world. To do so, our courses strive to constantly show in a laboratory setting the reality of the concepts shown in class. Laboratory courses will teach our students not just how to create materials but how to analyze data, design experiments, formulate hypotheses with the goal of both improve performances and create knowledge.

The program organizers are proud of the collaboration with our engineering, life sciences and earth sciences colleagues, with whom we have designed a portfolio of optional courses that will suit any students’ personal interests.

We are looking forward to have you join us!

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.

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'.

The Second-cycle Degree Course in Physics provides students with a path along the main research fields in Physics: the area covered are the Physics of Fundamental Interactions, Statistical Physics, Physics of Condensed Matter and Biophysics, ther theoretical cornerstones and the most advanced experimental and ICT-assisted techniques.
In the educational path of this degree course, students can choose among several courses. This allows for significant flexibility of educational pathways towards the students’ cultural needs, and it encourages a deep knowledge of advanced research themes, balancing theory and experimental techniques. Choice-based teaching is divided into three pathways: Theoretical Physics, Biophysics and Soft Matter Physics, Physics of Matter and Functional Materials.

Theses can be carried out either in the University of Parma facilities or in private companies or affiliated facilities. In this case, an internship will be activated, which is also an important training and orientation experience, to bring the students closer to the world of work.
