A minor is a didactic course, aimed towards those enrolled in Bachelor's Degree programmes, composed of 3 modules, each worth 6 ECTS, for a total of 18 ECTS, that allows students to amplify and complete their training, whether scientific or in humanities, looking at materials that they have not had the chance to deepen their knowledge on as it falls outside their specific training. Students can choose from the Minors offered, except for those whose content is already part of their degree; on the webpage for each minor possible study programmes that Minors cannot be chosen for are indicated. Students can choose a Minor and insert the modules that it is composed of by filling in their study plan. Normally, 2 of the 3 modules (12 ECTS) are inserted as optional credits, the third module (6 ECTS) is inserted as a supernumerary or additional credit. If you are enrolled in the Management Degree programme, all 3 modules of the Minor can be selected for the 18 optional credits provided by the programme. If the Minor has limited places available, admission will be subject to a selection process, and the process will be indicated in the specific course announcement (to be announced).
The Active Learning Centre adopts an innovative teaching approach whereby participants are actively involved in the production of knowledge (learning by doing). It replaces classroom-based lessons with interactive, experience-oriented, interdisciplinary teaching promoting innovation processes dealing with real-life cases in an open, creative context that is both responsive and trust-inspiring. With the support of their lecturers, students embark upon a process of discovery that will put them to the test and make them become more self-aware as well as helping them to acquire cross-disciplinary competences useful for the world of work. The Active Learning Centre activities are open to students enrolled in or graduating from Master’s degree programmes in all disciplinary areas and from all universities (unless otherwise stated in the webpages of the single activities concerned).
