Educational goals

The Phd programme in Political Studies aims at a deep understanding of modern and contemporary Politics, analysed using a variety of primary and secondary sources, with an interdisciplinary method. The PhD programme has a strong multidisciplinary vocation. Its goal is to encourage high level research in the following main research fields: History of political thought and political philosophy; Modern and contemporary history; History of political institutions; History, theory and law of international relations and European integration; International cooperation; Political and social theory; Sociology of political, legal and cultural processes; Economics; Language and Politics. The PhD programme is divided in two main courses: - History of doctrines and political institutions; - Theory of socio-cultural-political processes and international cooperation. The courses intend to offer an in-depth knowledge of the constitutive and evolutionary dynamics of modern and contemporary politics, investigated through a comprehensive interdisciplinary approach. Specific training objectives of the courses are: - The deepening of the study of historical processes and scientific theories in the political, philosophical, sociological and legal disciplines. - The acquisition of a sure command of the methodologies of empirical research. - The development of a solid theoretical awareness in the thematic areas pertaining to the doctorate; - The attainment of competences and professional skills necessary to interpret and "govern" the evolutionary dynamics of contemporary social, political, economic and institutional phenomena, also with regard to equal opportunities and international cooperation processes. The objectives of the PhD Programme will be pursued, firstly, through the creation of a community of students and professors who, sharing knowledge and expertise from different areas of the human, historical, political, and social sciences, will develop methodological and conceptual tools to enhance and, at the same time, overcome "disciplinary boundaries". The activities planned for this purpose will be structured in a mandatory training course, as follows: 1. A first level common to all doctoral students for the first year, which will provide theoretical and methodological skills for the analysis of political, cultural, and social processes as well as knowledge on some areas of general interest; 2. A second level consisting of cycles of seminars characterizing the specific areas of study of the doctoral students (first, second, and third year). In line with the international vocation of the PhD Programme, doctoral students are also encouraged to carry out research stays abroad for which they are supported through funding opportunities.
