Our Doctoral School is comprised of various disciplines including the fields of law, economy, psychology, sociology, cultural anthropology and international relations. Therefore, our vision is multifaceted and interdisciplinary.

The objective in each of the PhD Programmes is

  • to develop highly specialized researchers and practicing professionals who can succeed both domestically and internationally.
  • to develop competent researchers and practicing professionals who are able to apply their skills flexibly.

Doctoral School students are required to attend all courses and seminars expressly addressed to them. Students can obtain credits for their educational activities.

Every students will be assisted by a tutor responsible for introducing Doctoral students to the research activity.

In addition, our doctoral school, characterized by its diversity, strongly supports PhD students in setting up activities. On March 30 2012 our PhD students organized a multidisciplinary workshop based on the principle of active interaction “Immigrants in the European Union: citizenship as a phenomen of  inclusion/exclusion”. 

The School has recently launched a survey to gather information to monitor ours Graduate Students’ postdoctoral professional or academic careers and their publications.

Thirteen PhD scholarships of three years duration were awarded by INPDAP (Italian National Welfare Institute for Public Administration Employees). Students with outstanding merit and whose parents were state employees, were eligible to apply for the above mentioned scholarships.

In conclusion, our School tries is to contribute to the internationalization of doctoral training and to the facilitation of networking between professors and doctoral students at different international universities. The courses include  seminars by leading international  and national scholars.
