The Lyceum of Human Sciences E. Gianturco of Potenza collects in particular the legacy of Lyceum  socio-psycho-pedagogical and the Lyceum of the social sciences, trying to combine tradition and modernity.

The purpose of the Lyceum of Human Sciences E. Gianturco of Potenza is to provide students basic tools to navigate:

  • in the internal dimension of the mind and emotions
  • in the external dimension of socio-economic relations
  • in the enhancement of physical training – motor and sports.

In addition to ensuring a complete cultural formation as a Lyceum, this high school is characterized by the deepening and reflection on the complexity of human nature with the aim of guide students to better understand themselves and others, providing them with the tools to orientate in body dimension and in the interior dimension of the mind and emotions.

  • Psychology that is the science that studies the mind and behaviour of people, wondering, for example: “How memory works? “,” What are emotions? “,” How interpret dreams? “,” What are mental disorders? “, etc..
