Curriculum Oriental Studies: for students enrolled a.y. 2022-22

Il Curriculum di Studi orientali prevede quattro percorsi possibili ma non vincolanti: 1) Indologico-iranistico, 2) Sinologico-nipponistico, 3) Studi sul Vicino Oriente e sul mondo islamico, 4) Studi sull’Africa, che lo studente potrà costruire inserendo nel proprio piano di studio gli insegnamenti del percorso scelto.

Si ricorda che non è possibile inserire più di una volta nel piano di studi lo stesso insegnamento (vale a dire con lo stesso codice), anche qualora esso sia presente in più raggruppamenti del piano didattico.
