Educational objectives
Hide
The reflection on the issues and problems concerning the pedagogical sciences and the management of educational processes within institutions and professional training agencies, companies and public administration structures is the focus of the degree course in "Educational science" From an adequate basic knowledge of pedagogical and teaching-methodological disciplines and of the philosophical, psychological, sociological and anthropological disciplines, the educational programme takes, through mandatory core educational activities relating to historical, geographical, economic, legal, scientific, linguistic, artistic disciplines and to the teaching methodology for the integration of disabled people, a methodological and operational direction. Alongside these latter, there are teaching activities aimed at integrating the knowledge of pedagogical sciences with the study of other human sciences (Psychology, Philosophy, Sociology, Foreign Languages and Literatures) and at directing the curricular path to the demands of the labor market. During the course of their studies, students will experience firsthand the close observation of the crucial aspects and issues of their future professional role, in a logic of empowerment and according to the guidelines proposed in the educational planning, or based on their personal interests and skills, through an educational path which might be, alternatively, oriented towards the profession or to further studies. Elective activities will be awarded 12 credits. The degree course can be activated by the Faculty of Education in Palermo as well as at the teaching site of the University of Palermo in Agrigento, in order to reduce the travelling difficulties of students and to develop new knowledge, up-to-date skills and professional skills consistent with a territorial context too often marginal compared to the development paths. The degree course in " Educational Science " prepares students to deal with and manage the specific issues relating to the educational process in institutions and training institutions, companies or public administration facilities.
