PhD programmes

Targets

The PhD program aims at providing an advanced research training on the different fields of Social Psychology, Developmental Psychology and Educational Research with particular attention to: on the one hand (a) the theoretical and methodological aspects of the fields, and on the other hand (b) the focus on some specific thematic domains characterizing each research filed, especially at an international level. In this perspective, the PhD program consists of four main formative curricula, differently focused on these two aspects and variously internationalized, as specified below.

The PhD program aims at training of Ph.D. graduates able to carry out activities in universities and public and private research institutions. Among public research institutions are those typically interested in Social Research (EG CENSIS Istat) to Opinion Polls and Market Research. Further specific outlet is represented by public and private entities interested in educational research.

Organization

To achieve a better organization of the third level of italian university education, were established new Graduate Schools which collect in them and organize some Phd courses.

The Department of Social and Developmental Psychology established since the A.Y. 2012-2013 the Graduate School on Psychological Sciences, to include, from the XXVIII cycle, the new PhD program in Social Psychology, Developmental and Educational Research, divided into different curricula that collect the experience of the two PhD programmes active in the XXVII cycle.
