Teaching Program  

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


Courses are short series of lectures (about 10 hours overall) which 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, student are also encouraged to attend a course at their choice from a master program other than that of their area of specialization. At the beginning of each academic year, the Doctoral School Board provides a list of the courses that are organized by the school.

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. At the beginning of each academic year, the Doctoral School Board provides a list of the series that are organized by the school.

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.
