PhD program

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 field, especially at an international level. The PhD program is committed to providing Ph.D. degree 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.

The course achieves these objectives by means of a series of methodological seminars that provide a solid basic training to the PhD students: see seminars's timetable for the current academic year in the left menu.


In this perspective, the PhD program consists of four main education curricula, differently focused on these aspects, as specified below.
