The degree program in Natural Sciences aims at providing students with an accurate knowledge of Natural and Environmental Sciences. Subjects range from living being, both from the past and current ones, to earth science. In order to protect and enhance nature and the environment it is necessary to build a complete understanding of both animals and plants that live in the different habitats of the earth, especially in our region and our country, and to develop a knowledge of both natural events (floods, landslides and earthquakes) and of those related to human activities (pollution) which are menacing the environment. Furthermore, promoting nature and the environment, through cultural and educational activities (seminars, museum exhibitions, natural parks, theme parks) and through the support to sustainable economic activities. The increased attention paid to these aspects will offer good job opportunities to the experts in this field.
