Cultural programme

The College cultural programme supplements Ca’ Foscari’s degree programmes, increasing the students’ knowledge and providing them with additional innovated competencies.

All of College courses are taught in English through innovative teaching methods and aim at improving different students’ skills.

During their three or two-year study courses (either BA or Master) College students must spend a period of study or internship abroad, attend compulsory courses and choose among a series of labs, lectures and seminars so as to improve their interdisciplinary skills in order to get more suitable chances for their future studies or work.

Students can choose to take one of Ca’ Foscari’s degree programmes while participating at the same time in an additional programme made of Minor pluriannual courses and of a wide range of interdisciplinary cultural activities, lectures and workshops  they can pick from.

Minor programmes

The International College Minor programmes have been designed as three-year programmes that challenge the students cultural background, fostering their ability to elaborate individual and original solutions when facing different topics.

The Minor programmes have been conceived by a pool of teachers and experts  who focussed on three outstanding global issues that any high achieving student can be faced with during his working life or in their higher level of studies.

College bachelor students must attend one of the following Minor courses:

All of the College’s courses are taught in English through innovative teaching methods.

Each of the minors includes a period of study abroad and a series of workshops and lectures of the student’s choice, with the purpose of developing the necessary transferrable skills for making the most of study and employment opportunities.

Master Programme

The Masters’ programme is highly personalized and offers:

- a 6 CFU teaching course in History of the Modern Scientific Cultures;
