The goals of the Bachelor's degree programme in Philosophy, structured as a single-track programme, is to provide, first and foremost, a solid understanding of the basic timeline of philosophical and scientific thinking, as well as the different schools of thought in philosophical research, and philosophical criticism and methods. This well-established approach at the University of Milan, and its willingness to consider the points of intersection between diligent historical-philosophical study and understanding of the contemporary world, allows students to explore theoretical, epistemological, and moral topics thoroughly. Philosophy is the quintessential interdisciplinary field. Therefore, the Bachelor's degree programme also contemplates, once students have acquired a sufficient foundation in philosophy, that they expand their coursework into the humanities and the sciences, whether within the same, or in another, Faculty. They should seek out instruction which truly reflects the specific competencies they seek.
The course guarantees admission to the Master's Degree in Philosophy, and is set up to dovetail into the subsequent two-year cycle, for the purposes of earning the pre-requisites needed to access the secondary-school-teaching programme. It also provides the skills needed for a more immediate entry into a professional field of communication and cultural training, publishing, and multimedia dissemination of culture, project design and organisation within the public and private sector, and in the public administration.

Application and admission: Open.

An initial test to verify the students’ preparation is carried out through the TOLC-SU, CISIA OnLine Test, www.cisiaonline.it and must be taken before enrolment. 

Additional learning obligations (OFA)

OFA: Disciplines

Students who do not pass the entrance examination on one or more areas related to the degree course are assigned additional learning obligations (OFA, Obblighi formativi aggiuntivi) that they must fulfil in accordance with the provisions of the Programme Structure.

OFA: English language

Students must have level B1 proficiency in English. Proficiency may be certified at the time of matriculation by submitting a certificate of level B1 language proficiency or better, or by sitting the SLAM (University Language Centre) Placement test during the first year of studies only, between September and December.

Students who do not pass the test must follow the SLAM language courses and obtain appropriate certification within the year the plan of study calls for a language exam.

The Bachelor's Degree Programme in Philosophy has had Erasmus-exchange partnerships with other European universities for over ten years. The programme keeps students up-to-date on these, encouraging them to take advantage of the opportunities these exchanges offer. In recent years, the Erasmus scholarship programme application has been posted to the University's website, and is presented to philosophy students through a special meeting organised by the degree programme's Erasmus manager, where students are given an introduction to the various campuses, and different options for specialising in philosophy. Given the vast number of campus options, all philosophical areas are covered through the various available campuses: history of philosophy, theoretical philosophy, moral philosophy, aesthetics, philosophy of language, logic and philosophy of science. The various locations also offer the opportunity for students to take exams in subjects other than philosophy.
Candidates are selected by a commission made up of Bachelor's degree programme faculty, who assess the student's interests and their academic career. Admission interviews are in the language of the foreign country where the students intend to study, in order to assess their language proficiency.
Admitted students will fill out the Learning Agreement with the Erasmus manager. Once abroad, they will correspond via email with the manager regarding any changes. Students submitting a Learning Agreement to the Erasmus manager via email will receive it back e-signed. They may then have their host university countersign the document prior to their return home.
Upon returning home, any exams the student has taken whilst abroad (documented in the "Transcript of Records") are converted into Italian exams based on the Learning Agreement; exam conversion and the marks for the same shall be subject to approval of the Academic Board for Philosophy.
