The Master's Degree in Didactic and Communication of Sciences (hereafter S4EDU) trains a well-defined, nationally innovative and multi-tasking professional figure on the basis of modern science education. S4EDU graduates combine a knowledge of how natural systems work with the most effective skills in science communication and dissemination. This Master's Degree, which is part of the LM-60 Nature Sciences Class, is the natural complement to the Bachelor's degree in Natural Sciences (L-32). S4EDU is also open to three-year graduates with a different scientific background who are interested in the integrated understanding and communication of science.

Programme contents

The strength of S4EDU is its strong interdisciplinary nature, which allows for approaching nature sciences from different perspectives. In the first phase (LEARNING), alongside the consolidation of mathematical studies for the sciences, the problem of climate change and the conscious management of the Earth System will be explored, integrating themes from Ecology, Biosciences, Geosciences and Chemistry. The most modern methodologies and technologies of scientific and digital communication (COMMUNICATING) will subsequently be acquired. S4EDU is completed by seminars and practical activities useful for entering the world of work (PRACTICE) carried out in a naturalistic analysis centre, school, divulgation centre. Some activities are carried out in collaboration with MUSE, the Science Museum of Trento.

Job opportunities

The S4EDU professional figure is absent in the region and poorly represented at national level. A strong point is the multi-faceted nature of the graduate, who will be able to teach science in Upper Secondary Schools and mathematics and science in Lower Secondary Schools. Graduates in S4EDU will also be able to collaborate on naturalistic and scientific publishing projects. In addition, they will be able to direct their career towards the creation of projects for the monitoring and enhancement of the natural environment, environmental design aimed at safeguarding fauna and flora, the conservation of biodiversity and the enhancement and preservation of sites of geological and naturalistic interest. It allows registration in the professional register of graduate agro-technicians and agronomic surveyors (after passing the state examination).
