Politics, Philosophy and Public Affairs (PPPA)
The study plan includes a common core of courses addressing cutting-edge topics in political science, in moral and political philosophy - topics which are specifically selected for their relevance within public debates. Core courses also provide accurate historical competences, apt to rigorously frame similar debates, as well as advanced training in empirical methodologies and argumentative strategies, which will strengthen students' analytical capacities and their ability to assess and defend normative and policy proposals.
The second year of the programme offers the opportunity to study in depth a wide array of topics organized into two main areas. The first area - "Technology, science and society" - includes courses critically addressing the import and the ethical implications of scientific and technological development, with a special emphasis on pressing questions concerning environmental studies, bioethics, neuroethics, biopolitics, on the challenges of the information society and on the new dynamics of media systems. The second area - "Prosperity, peace and international affairs" - comprises courses focusing on current socio-economic and political developments and their effects on individual life chances and rights, social policies and schemes of distributive justice as well as courses addressing the dilemmas connected to new forms of war and conflict. Within these two main areas, students will have the chance to autonomously define their study plan according to their interests and based on the professional profile they intend to develop.
