Registration for courses for the 2nd semester 2021-22 will open on January 19, 2022.
The full list of courses, with descriptions and syllabi, is already online.
The weekly schedule of the semester will soon be available in the Schedules section of the VIU website.
Over 100 students from all over the world will take courses on Italy, Cultures of the World and Global Challenges in the 15-week program, starting on February 14, 2022. The specialization track courses will focus on Environmental Management and Sustainable Development, Cities and Global Change and Environmental Humanities.
The interdisciplinary courses are structured as seminars and require interaction in research, so as to facilitate the exchange of knowledge among students from different academic and cultural backgrounds.
All students registered in degree programs at one of VIU's twenty Member Universities are eligible to apply for the Globalization Program. Students in the first year of undegraduate degrees (lauree triennali) are not eligible.
Courses are recognized for credits by the students' home universities.
Students can pre-register to the Globalization Program after having submitted their application to the study abroad office of their home universities, with the exception of Università Ca' Foscari Venezia, Università IUAV di Venezia, Università degli Studi di Padova and Università degli Studi di Roma “Tor Vergata” students who can pre-register directly.
