Learning Objectives

The course is spread over two training courses, one of 10 credits and one of 6 credits. The first course consists of six parts while the second deals only with the first five (see the subdivision under "Program").

The course studies the relationship between economy and the environment in its many aspects. The causes of environmental degradation and control policies are analyzed, with particular attention to the formulation of collective choices, the evaluation of environmental assets, the various regulatory methodologies, the sustainable management of natural resources.

The student is prepared for the understanding and analysis of the environmental problems that have emerged in recent years and also for the knowledge and use of new control methods.

The course provides tools to help understand what environmental assessment and regulatory policies are. A specific part of the study course (which is addressed only by students with the 10 CFU course) is dedicated to an in-depth study of the themes of the circular economy and the ecological transition.
