The Master's degree programme in Philosophical Sciences from The University of Milan, provides graduates with an in-depth knowledge of the contents and methods of philosophical investigation, while promoting specialist training in various research fields.


Without prejudice to the need for a broad and general philosophical training, two reasons call for specialization in the area of philosophical studies during the Master's programme.

Firstly, specialist training allows graduates to become aware of the specificity and complexity of problems, both theoretical and practical, as required of a professional nowadays.

Secondly, over the last decades the areas of philosophical research have become increasingly rich and diverse. Not only do they provide specific content and reasoning tools aimed at developing critical ability, they also deepen relationships with various fields of study including: psychology, linguistics, information technology, art, history, sociology, political science, anthropology, pedagogy, biology, physics, mathematics.

For this purpose, the degree programme requires graduates to follow orientation courses in Year I, and specialist courses in their chosen field in Year II, while exploring the multiple interactions with related and complementary disciplines. The knowledge, skills and competences gained allow students to write and discuss their thesis at a specialist level.


Graduates in Philosophical Sciences from The University of Milan, will be able to:

  • conduct independent research in the context of doctoral or research programs in philosophy and related sciences in Italy and abroad;
  • teach philosophy, history, pedagogy and demo-anthropological disciplines in high schools and other secondary schools;
