Double Degree with Universidad Nacional del Litoral

Since the 2014/2015 academic year, Ca’ Foscari University has had an inter-university co-operation relationship with the Universidad Nacional del Litoral (Argentina). It was created as a joint study program, integrating the educational paths of the two partner universities and providing mobility periods for students and teachers. At the end of the course the students then get a double degree:

  • Masters Degree in History from the middle age to present at Ca’ Foscari University;
  • Licenciatura in History from the Universidad Nacional del Litoral.

For selected Ca’ Foscari students in particular, the course of study allows a semester at the Universidad Nacional del Litoral during the first or second year. Examinations taken at the Universidad Nacional del Litoral are recognized in the Ca’ Foscari as corresponding to 30 CFU of the Master(a quarter of the curriculum).
