Course Objectives

Structured as a single curriculum, the Philosophy degree programme is primarily designed to provide students with a sound basic understanding of the key axes of the history of philosophical and scientific thought, the various different expressions of philosophical research and related critical and methodological concepts.

Taught from a consolidated perspective at the faculty in Milan, the course takes into account the close-knit ties that exist between rigorous historic and philosophical research, with a reference to the contemporary period. Particular focus is placed on the in-depth study of theoretical, epistemological and moral considerations.

As a result of its strictly interdisciplinary character, which is characteristic of philosophical study, the degree is also designed, through the provision of sufficient philosophical training, to allow students to develop their own line of study, drawing directly on other areas of humanistic and scientific study. This is achieved through the provision of teaching which is fully compatible with the specific competences required.

Career and Employment

Successful completion of the programme guarantees entry to the master's degree in Philosophical Sciences. The course is also compatible with the subsequent two-year cycle, provided that the minimum requisite conditions for admission to secondary school teacher training have been met.

The course also equips students with the competences required for a more immediate entry into professional roles within the fields of communication and cultural training, publishing, the diffusion and promotion of culture through the multimedia, organisational and planning activities for public and private entities, and public administration.
