The EUR inserts some historical-social and humanistic philosophical teachings in every degree programme, considering them valuable components for the personal preparation of the student, because the working world is shifting its focus from technical skills to human competences and we are aware that this lack of information can be more easily retrieved than an educational and training deficiency.
The teachings and humanistic training seminars are intended to promote a structured knowledge and a thorough understanding of the human person, which can stimulate big questions about the meaning of life and sincere search for what’s true and good, helping the student to form a deeper understanding and a clearer conscience to properly interpret reality. This will also foster the responsible exercise of the future profession, contributing to the common good.
In this sense, the Departmental Centre of Integral Formation (CEFI) proposes some specific academic subjects, transversely distributed in all spheres and at all course levels during the entire university education.
Each course lasts one year; in addition to lectures, there are many seminar-like meetings (presentations by students, discussions, group works).
Teachers of Humanistic Education are particularly dedicated to establishing a close and trusting relationship with students, accompanying them along the college path and acting as a natural reference point for the maturation of their personality through the study.
