The Philosophical Methodologies programme offered by the University of Genova arises from different traditions of studies that have made Genoa a reference point for national and international philosophical research.


The Philosophical Methodologies programme taught at the University of Genova brings together teachers of different methodological approaches in the field of philosophy, offering students the maximum freedom of cultural choice. Starting from the two-year period, we propose to the students different curricula to help them to better investigate some research fields and their applications. 

Each curriculum has different characterizing subjects, even if there are possibilities to insert some lessons from the other curricula. The choice of the curriculum requires not to make changes to the study plan (which nevertheless presents ample opportunity for choice).
