Introduction

The programme integrates coherently empirical-positive and theoretical-normative approaches in political science. The programme therefore provides students with the methodological tools and cultural background common to the various lines of study and research, and a solid specialised preparation in four main areas.

The inter-university doctoral programme in Political Studies (POLS) integrates coherently empirical-positive and theoretical-normative approaches in political science. The programme, therefore, provides students with the methodological tools and cultural background common to the various lines of study and research, and a solid specialised preparation in four main areas, which may in some cases overlap:

  • Institutions and public policy
  • Political theory and political philosophy
  • International studies
  • Political communication, public opinion and political behaviour

In order to promote the internationalization of the doctoral programme, English will be the official language.

The POLS doctoral programme aims to form not only young researchers who can engage in international academia but also professional figures able to undertake research, provide consultancy, coordinate and manage private research centres, think tanks, and political and economic organizations, both private and public, in regional, national and international contexts.
