Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore

Facoltà di Scienze della formazione

The traditions of the Faculty of Education are firmly entrenched in Università Cattolica. Founded as a faculty of the Magisterium in 1926, it confirms its close connections with illustrious masters such as Aldo Agazzi, the authoritative twentieth-century pedagogist, and famous literary critic Enzo Noè Girardi, Dean from 1983 to 1992.

The Faculty has always embraced the new challenges of knowledge and the contemporary perspectives on education.

Recognised as one of the most modern and specialised training centres, it is developing the outcomes of pioneering pedagogical and educational research thanks to the new spaces that communication technologies, bioethics, neurosciences and intercultural confrontation have opened up to education. The interdisciplinary dialogue between the University’s faculties of psychology, sociology, literature, philosophy and history to name a few, along with syllabuses cohesive to the world of work, result in an over-80% graduate employment rate.

Education has three perspectives: the individual as a person, as a subject in itself, […] and the socialisation and civilisation of the individual, that means the commitment to make him an interactive and conscious subject of society, integral part of the intrinsic values of the culture and community he belongs to.
