From the fundamentals to specialisation
The course syllabus covers a number of general areas in first year and focuses on more specific issues and techniques in advanced years. It is structured into the following modules:
- Philosophy, Politics and Society: you will study the fundamentals of philosophy, both from a historical and systematic perspective, using tools to analyse and interpret social problems.
- Politics, Criticism and Society: you will learn the core principles that explain the current socio-political structures and the main theories on social justice; from the sociological foundations of democratic societies to the political principles of states, all without losing the historical perspective and international dimension.
- Economics, Development and Society: you will learn the tools and methods to carry out micro and macroeconomic analysis to interpret the economic sphere and its influence in the cultural and socio-political context.
- Interdisciplinary Seminars: you will take part in seminars on current socio-political, economic and philosophical issues where you will address the key subject areas in these fields so that you can take an active part in them.
