The "Palazzina Reale" on Piazzale delle Cascine 18, headquarters of the School



The School of Agriculture was officially established on 1st March 2013 following the new organisational structure according to the Law of 30 December 2010 and performs functions of coordination and rationalisation of teaching activities provided in 14 degree programs.

The Department of Agricultural, Food, Environmental and Forestry Sciences and Technologies (DAGRI) and the Department of Chemistry "U. Schiff" are affiliated to the School.

At the moment, the School has four locations in the Municipality of Florence: the Administrative Office is located in the Palazzina Reale - Piazzale delle Cascine, 18 together. with some classrooms. More classrooms, laboratories and study areas are located in Via S. Bonaventura, 13 (Quaracchi) and Via Maragliano, 77. Most of the classes, however, are located in the C9 building at the Novoli campus.

The educational offer activated consists of 14 degree programs, one of which entirely in English, divided into:

     7 First-Level Degree Courses (BSc)
     7 Second-Level Degree Courses (MSc)

The programs offered by the School of Agriculture aim to make the student aware of the methodologies and tools available for the management of forest, agricultural and urban ecosystems, the study of climate change, the production of crops for direct consumption or foods, and the transformation processes of food products.

Moreover, students will be able to understand the importance of the management of protected areas and their fauna and learn the sustainable breeding techniques of the main livestock species, not only to meet the technical requirements of production but also to ensure food safety and quality, protect the environment and the landscape, organise and manage the economic and cultural development of territorial systems.

Students can spend periods abroad, at universities and facilities with whom we have an agreement, in order to pass exams (Erasmus+), write final theses and carry out practical and applied training, or have post-graduate work experience (traineeship).

The excellent ratio of lecturers/students makes it possible to assist students from the beginning of the first year and throughout their university life. Students enrolled in the courses coordinated by the School also have spaces for individual study, including in the Library of Technology Sciences, which has 400,000 volumes, 5,000 journals, scholarly archives and valuable special collections.
