Culture of Unity

The degree programme draws from anthropology, the humanities and social sciences in their concurring contribution toward a reading of reality and complex scenarios and processes in the light of an integral vision of the human being and contemporary society. Two specific areas are thus explored: communication and dialogue (understood mainly as intercultural and interreligious), and integral education of the person.

“Supporting educational and communicative processes to generate fraternal societies”
