Bibliographic research and writing of a philosophy scientific text
Since 2016, as part of the Agreement with the Regional Board of the Penitentiary Administration, the University of Milan has been holding 20-hour teaching modules in the prisons of Opera, Bollate and San Vittore, attended by outside students as well as detainees.
These modules and workshops are a unique learning opportunity for detainees, who cannot follow any lectures on campus, as well as a chance for personal and cultural growth for all students.
These are capped-admission workshops and modules (max. 15 to 20 places), given entrance and occupancy restrictions. To join, pre-register following the instructions given in the programme (as a rule, you will be required to email the instructor or host). Once they have the final dates for the workshops, the instructor will contact you for confirmation.
You will easily identify these workshops by their name: "Pre-professional workshop in the ... prison".
