Structured as a single curriculum, the degree programme in Philosophical Sciences is designed to equip students with the theoretical, methodological and critical competences specific to the various axes of philosophical study, together with a sound general awareness of the historic evolution of philosophical thought, from its origins to the current day.

Students also have the opportunity to complement these philosophical and historical competences with training in other areas of humanistic culture and scientific research, on the basis of each individual student’s primary interests and professional requirements. To this end, graduates have access to courses provided by different degree programmes at the University.

The master degree programme in Philosophical Sciences provides a requisite entry point for pursuing teaching in related subject areas at secondary school level.

Philosophical Sciences graduates can also enter positions of high responsibility in professional fields that require specific subject competences, together with critical skills and autonomy of thought.

These include:

  • publishing;
  • social services;
  • managerial roles in the promotion of cultural activities within the public administration or the private sector;
  • library or museum management;
  • press and inter-media communication centres;
  • public relations services;
  • personnel management;
  • company organisation and management.

Application and admission: Open, subject to entry requirements.
