Teaching Program  

The PhD program in Philosophy and the Humans Sciences includes the following activities: course, series of seminars and reading groups.


The teaching program consists of  6 courses (3 credits each). The courses aim at providing students with a deep grasp on the core topics of the research areas of the Doctoral School. Given the interdisciplinary nature of the PhD program, students must also pick one course (9 credits) at their choice from a master program other than that of their area of specialization.

Series of Seminars

These are usually scheduled series of research seminars that spread over a period of time. They focus on a specific area and may be organized also by other institutions. Students are required to attend at least two series of seminar during the first 18 months. At the beginning of each academic year, the Doctoral School Board provides a list of the series that can be taken into consideration for the fulfillment of this requirement. 

Reading groups

Students are expected to take part into series of reading groups, which focus on foundational and methodological issues; this is meant to provide the students with a common ground on philosophy and human sciences. These meetings also aim at keeping the participants up to date with the main contemporary research results.
