The taught programmes in the DIST Department aim to provide expertise on the complex processes that affect space and its relations with the contemporary economy and society, combining the technical, physical and morphological dimensions of the processes with their normative, value and symbolic characteristics.

Ecosystems and territories, institutions and social, economic, political, and environmental processes are at the centre of a pedagogical project that is based on the values of interdisciplinarity, intellectual leadership and integration of knowledge, as well as the social values of equality, democracy, and sustainability.


With this in mind, DIST manages and offers Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes, Post-graduate and Specializing Master’s courses, Ph.D programme. Some of these are inter-departmental and inter-university organized.
