Making Judgements: 

The world of biological sciences is characterized by a multiplicity of disciplines and related problems. The main challenge for teaching in the field of Biology is to homogeneously present all the subject areas and clearly highlight the cultural and methodological connections between them. This provides that at the end of the training course the student has the ability to move in a complex environment, thanks to a multidisciplinary preparation that allows him to adopt the most appropriate approach in all circumstances. The expected results are ultimately verified during the preparation and presentation of the final exam. Graduates will be able to understand the most relevant aspects of the study topics; this will enable him to critically face the choices that will arise both in the case of continuing his studies in a master's degree and in the workplace. For example, he will be able to verify the general efficiency of a laboratory in terms of productivity and appropriateness of the procedures used, follow the development and management of research projects and application procedures, be generally proactive about the use of reagents / drugs / materials.

Communication skills: 

Given the complexity of the problems in the biological field, the clarity of analysis, synthesis and exposition must be developed for an effective communication of one's projects and results both in the scientific or work field, and with dissemination objectives. To this end, the student's ability to re-elaborate, synthesize and communicate information is stimulated in the course of Biological Sciences, through teachings that introduce the student to the scientific method, didactic seminars, internship in the laboratory, preparation of a written paper for the final exam and exhibition of the same. Furthermore, the graduate student, during the internship, refers to the scientific literature in English, thus improving his communication skills also in this language

Learning skills: 

Studies that range from physical-mathematical to purely biological fields are a stimulus to develop learning skills in a multifaceted and varied way. The logical aspects of the basic scientific areas are integrated by the strategic and methodological aspects typical of those areas of modern biology which are by their nature multidisciplinary. All this contributes to forming a graduate who has developed flexible and versatile learning skills, within the framework of a rigorous and critical approach to the sources of knowledge

Il superamento della prova finale è subordinato allo svolgimento di un periodo di tirocinio formativo presso un laboratorio, dove svolgere un'attività pratica qualificata inerente alle tematiche del Corso di Laurea. Il tirocinio può essere interno, se effettuato presso un laboratorio dell'Ateneo, o esterno, presso i laboratori di enti/aziende/università convenzionati con l'Ateneo. La proposta di tirocinio è soggetta ad approvazione del Consiglio di Corso, che valuta anche la coerenza e l'adeguatezza del progetto di tirocinio con gli obiettivi specifici del corso di laurea. Le modalità per il superamento della prova finale vengono dettagliate nel Regolamento Didattico del CCD. La prova finale sarà valutata da un’apposita commissione.
