Presso il  Dipartimento di Scienze Agrarie , Forestali e Alimentari i docenti operano in quattro principali filoni didattici: le Scienze agrarie, le Scienze forestali e ambientali,  le Scienze e Tecnologie alimentari, le Biotecnologie vegetali. L'offerta formativa del dipartimentoopen_in_new rispetta la normativa ministeriale ed è frutto di un progressivo adattamento alle esigenze delle filiere produttive agrarie, forestali e agroalimentari.

I docenti, grazie al loro impegno nella ricerca, garantiscono il continuo aggiornamento dei contenuti formativi dei corsi di studio. La partecipazione alle attività di coordinamento nazionale con i corsi di studi analoghi garantisce una elevata spendibilità dei crediti universitari acquisiti, sia per la mobilità degli studenti in ambito nazionale, sia per l'inserimento in programmi internazionali di formazione e scambio (ERASMUS).

Gli sbocchi occupazionali sono buoni, con un tempo di attesa per la prima occasione tra i migliori in Italia. Attualmente risultano privilegiati gli impieghi nel settore produttivo privato, seguiti dai servizi per aziende e dal pubblico impiego.

L'offerta formativa è articolata in 4 corsi di laurea di primo livello e 7 corsi di laurea magistrale (II livello):

LANGUAGE & COGNITION Reading Group
Theories of Reference and Experimental Semantics 
Every Monday - 11:00 am / 1:00pm - DAFIST - Philosophical Section - PhD Room - Via Bensa 2 - Genoa (Italy). 

In the ordinary use of language speakers use proper names and descriptions to refer to objects and individuals. What are the cognitive processes involved in the identification of the reference of an expression? How is it possible that sometimes speakers correctly understand inaccurate, incorrect or ambiguous descriptions? Is the ability of referring to objects and individuals a basic linguistic competence or is it something that speakers acquire and develop with the linguistic practice?
The seminar, addressed particularly to PhD students and graduate students of psychology and philosophy, aims at facing the problem of reference assignment, a traditional topic of the debate in cognitive psychology and in philosophy of language.
The seminar will be divided in two parts: the first section will be devoted at presenting the main theoretical approaches to the topic under discussion, while in the second part results from the most recent psycholinguistic experimental works will be discussed.
