The two curricula

The master degree programme in Environmental Assessment and Management offers two different curricula.

The two curricula share the location, the teachers, the interdisciplinary approach and the idea that environmental management must be based on scientific knowledge. At the same time, they are focused on different aspects and have completely separate study plans.

From the students' point of view, the two curricula are in fact two separate, alternative courses. The choice must be made already at the application stage. It is possible to make two separate applications, one for each curriculum but, in case of admission to both, it will be necessary to choose one.

The Environmental Analysis and Management curriculum (Analisi e gestione dell'ambiente, AGA)

This curriculum is a consolidated reality within the Ravenna Campus and is taught in Italian.

AGA deals with the environment as a whole. Topics such as environmental impact assessment procedures, sustainable chemistry, environmental management systems, circular economy, life cycle assessment of products, processes and services are particularly emphasised.

The Water and Coastal Management (WACOMA) International Curriculum

This curriculum capitalises on the experience of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree in Water and Coastal Management, a partnership between the Universities of Bologna, Algarve (Portugal) and Cadiz (Spain).

Starting from  2022/2023 academic year, WACOMA is independently managed by the University of Bologna as one of the two curricula of the master's degree in Environmental Assessment and Management. The curriculum maintains its international character and is fully taught in English.

WACOMA deals with the analysis and management of marine coastal areas. Students acquire a deep understanding of coastal processes (such as coastal erosion, salt intrusion, chemical and biological pollution, biodiversity loss) and ability to manage risks associated with natural and human-induced events, consequences of global changes.
