The current process of internationalization of knowledge invites our graduate program to adapt to training standards that allow for dissemination of knowledge in an international context. Knowledge of scientific vocabulary of English and some practice the same language both written and spoken are encouraged in several Italian universities with language teaching, therefore, is in the Bachelor in "Psychological Sciences and Techniques", he wanted to introduce an examination choice in English just to accustom students to overcome the widespread reluctance towards foreign languages ​​and to acquire a growing mastery in both reading and understanding of the text but also in the understanding and use of the scientific registry of the mouth region.

The course aims to meet the growing need for training offer internationalization of the University of Urbino and is the first of its kind in the University. It is offered as a choice exam for students of the third year of the Bachelor in Sciences and psychological techniques.

It is inspired by important methodological principles established by research on teaching in a foreign language.

In using this approach, commonly used in universities in other European countries, the Italians course will allow students to learn content of a specific discipline and at the same time improve their knowledge of English.
