Educational objectives
Hide
The educational programme of this course aims at providing graduates with the multidisciplinary competences and skills in social, economic and demo-ethno-anthropological sciences enabling them to understand, face and manage with adequacy and professionalism problems deriving from cooperation and economic development actions in those areas which are, for various reasons, defined as “depressed” or underdeveloped areas. The course also aims at transmitting the skills needed to work in organised contexts such as local and national public administration as well as in international governmental and nongovernmental organisations and in the third sector, as well as in all the private national and international companies with a specific interest in investing in less developed areas. A characteristic feature of this Degree Course is also the creation of professionals capable of managing with attention all the phases of the actions of cooperation for development. Students will therefore be accompanied through an educational programme enabling them to acquire advanced knowledge of: - Social relation processes, with a detailed overview of the demo-ethno-anthropological aspects with reference to past and modern traditions, through the disciplines of anthropology, sociology, history and demograpy; - The dynamics underlying the main processes of development and economic convergence, at the micro and macro levels, through economic subjects; - The main notions related to rights with a focus on international law and European Union law, through legal subjects; - The methodological, social and economic statistics tools and methods, which are necessary to describe complex phenomena. The course also aims at providing students with specific insights related to immigration and to the problems of integration of foreign citizens, as well as aspects related to international political programs. Students have 12 credits for elective courses. The Degree Course in Economic Development and International Cooperation aims at training professionals in the field of cooperation and development . who possess the tools for understanding the underdevelopment realities, the problems related to economic growth and sustainable development, the policies to combat poverty and the modelling, democratization, globalization and international regulation processes. This is also achieved through a long mandatory stage period awarded 12 credits.
