The aim is to build a solid culture based on the skills acquired in previous years.

The scientific field is strengthened because it is based on theoretical concepts and trains in the singularity of scientific reasoning. Their aim is to help students understand the specific nature of scientific knowledge, in terms of practices, methods and social issues.
