Working in small groups and open to the world
For the last few years the Faculty of Education has been listed among the top universities in Italy in this field by the national daily newspaper ‘La Repubblica’. In the years 2007 and 2008 it was even in first place. Among many other factors, this is due to the excellent research being conducted at the faculty, research which is seamlessly integrated into the teaching in all the various subject areas. This means that students can take advantage of the most up-to-date research findings. The faculty is further characterised by its multilingualism, by the close connections between research, teaching and practical applications and furthermore, by state-of-the-art equipment. Another innovative aspect is the teaching syllabus where German and Italian experts in education cooperate, reflecting Brixen/Bressanone’s bridging function between the German and Italian traditions of education.
The faculty is furthermore unique in the field of nursery/primary education: it offers university training for nursery/primary educators, with relevant research programmes and publications, which are unique in the German-speaking world.
The faculty offers programmes in the following specialist areas:
- Teacher-training for all levels, including nursery/primary education
- Sociology of education and social work
- Communication sciences
The faculty in Brixen/Bressanone is ideally located for those who speak German and who want to start studying in Italy and also for Italians who wish to study in the German-speaking world, as supporting language courses are on offer and the teachers of each of the two languages ensure a multilingual environment.
