Multi-campus courses

Multi-campus courses

The CIVICA multi-campus courses, designed and taught jointly by teams of professors from the alliance, represent a flagship initiative of CIVICA for master’s students offering interdisciplinary approaches and cross-cultural perspectives as well as the opportunity to work, study and interact in a trans-European setting.

The format at a glance

  • Flagship initiative
    An innovative format for graduate students within the CIVICA alliance, coordinated by Bocconi University.

  • Collaborative academic design
    Jointly developed and delivered by teams of professors from various partner institutions within the alliance.

  • Synchronous online learning experience with flexible access
    Lessons are delivered synchronously online across all CIVICA campuses in a unified slot each week. To accommodate differing academic calendars, all lectures are also recorded and available for asynchronous access.

  • Local content
    Additional local lectures or in presence activities organised at each campus complement the common part of the course.

  • Transnational teamwork & capstone project
    Beyond lectures, the course promotes cross-country and interdisciplinary teamwork, leading to a final capstone project in the second part of the course carried out under the supervision of faculty members from the alliance.
