Programme profile

The 2nd cycle degree programme in Philosophical Sciences provides advanced knowledge of the main historical-critical analytical methods applied to philosophical texts, with reference to fundamental concepts, forms of argument, special languages, as well as the theories and interpretative models used in general and sectoral areas of philosophy.

For this purpose, the programme offers a guided choice of course units from the core subject areas indicated in the ministerial table: Theoretical Philosophy, Philosophy of Language, Logics and Philosophy of Science, Moral Philosophy, Aesthetics, History of Philosophy, History of Science and scientific subjects.

Credits in elective course units covering the two-year programme allow students to design their own curricula in relation to both specific subject interests and future career opportunities. In this way they can develop knowledge in specific sectors of philosophy or acquire other cultural knowledge to better define their own professional profiles. These studies may also be of an interdisciplinary nature: epistemological-scientific, moral-legal, aesthetic-artistic, historic-literary.

The degree programme also aims to enhance knowledge of another European language in addition to Italian.
The second year of the 2nd cycle degree programme includes an internship, offering students the possibility to come into contact with the world of work.

The acquisition of critical skills, the development of communication and independent assessment skills are considered essential to complete the students' scientific training.
