The Master's programme places Biochemistry, as common thread of biological molecular processes, at the very centre of the students’ educational path, making it the interpretative key of their future professional and working approach. The aim of the programme is to create a professional figure that operates at the interface between Biology and Chemistry, at the service of applied and basic research, and of the production of goods and services. The degree programme provides in-depth theoretical knowledge of the main fields of Biochemistry, Biochemical Methodologies and Biotechnologies, as well as a solid practical preparation, thanks to the presence of laboratory classes and a laboratory placement, aimed at the preparation of an experimental thesis, which can be carried out in Academia or in public and private research institutions. The educational path of the programme is divided into three main learning areas: Structural and functional biochemistry; Cellular biochemistry, physiopathology and pharmacology; Biochemical methodologies and biotechnologies. It also includes a fourth Specialisation Area consisting of a panel of elective courses in Advanced Biochemistry, Medical and pharmaceutical, and Nutritional and Agro-industrial fields. Students will also acquire knowledge of Bioethics, Patenting, Regulation and Communication Skills.

About University

The Department of Classics was created in 2010, bringing together archaeological, historical, philological, literary, epigraphic and linguistic disciplines related to antiquity, which had previously been hosted in a range of different departments. As a result of this, the department both promotes and supports constant interaction between the disciplines and interdisciplinary approaches to antiquity.

With some 70 faculty members, we are one of the largest and most preeminent institutions in the field. We carry out research in all disciplines related to the ancient world, from the Prehistory to the Middle Ages, in Europe, Africa and in the Near and Middle East.

The Department is organised into three Sections: Archaeology, Greek and Latin Philology and History, Epigraphy and Topography (East and Ancient Mediterranean). It also boasts eight laboratories, a rich research library, with more than 150,000 volumes, divided into four main thematic areas (Archaeology, Classical and Byzantine Philology, Prehistoric Archaeology, Ancient History and Topography), and four museums (Museo dell’Arte Classica, Museo delle Origini, Museo del Vicino Oriente, Museo delle Antichità Etrusche e Italiche), which form part of the Polo Museale Sapienza.

The Department offers:

• two BA courses in Italian: Archaeological Science and Classics;

• two MA courses in Italian: Archaeology; Philology, Literature and History of the Ancient World;

• one BA course in English: Classics;

• one MA course in English: Classical Archaeology (distance learning course, in collaboration with Unitelma Sapienza);

• two PhD courses: in Archaeology and in Philology and History of the ancient world;

• the School of Specialization in Archaeology;

• Master of Architecture for Archaeology (in collaboration with the Faculty of Architecture).
