Characteristics and objectives
This Bachelor's degree provides a strong interdisciplinary advanced training in Earth system sciences based on topics covering solid Earth, oceans, climate, atmosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere dynamics and their related complexities. With innovative teaching methods which combine classroom teachings and field activities, students will acquire a technical-scientific background of the most widely used and innovative techniques in remote sensing, satellite data processing, GIS, use of drones, coding and basic modelling. Students are provided with specific and professionalising skills that are becoming increasingly important to tackle today's climate challenges.

Occupational opportunities
In addition to being able to continue their studies in a master's degree program, graduates can also work in public and private laboratories for geological and environmental analyses, in public and private research agencies and bodies for environmental management and protection at national and international level, and in protected areas, natural parks and marine reserves in relation to communication and mitigation of the effects of climate change.

From Bachelor's degree to Master's degree
Students can pursue their studies within a Master's degree in Earth Dynamics, Geophysics for Natural Risks and Resources or related fields.
