Studium Generale

You learn something new every day!

Course description

Studium Generale is an interdisciplinary study programme available to the general public for those who wish to strengthen their knowledge in various fields ranging from creativity and culture to technology and business, from parenting parents and families to languages and communication.

Through the Studium Generale programme you can obtain credits that can count towards a higher education study programme. Exams taken for the Studium Generale programme may qualify you for entry to a degree course later.

Starting in the academic year 2019/20, two different course programmes can be chosen within the framework of the Studium Generale: one with the majority of courses on the Bozen-Bolzano campus and a new one on the Brixen-Bressanone campus with courses on current topics in the humanities and social sciences.

Also current students who want to enrich their general knowledge can combine classes from Studium Generale with their degree programme.
