What is the objective of the course? What is it?
What does it train you for?

The course in Philosophical and Historical Studies aims to provide a broad post-secondary education in the field of Human Sciences. The course also prepares to the two-year master's degree course (Philosophical and Historical Sciences (LM78), Historical, Anthropological and Geographical Studies, LM84) for subsequent access to teaching in I and II grade secondary schools (History and Philosophy, Human Sciences and History and Geography). The course of studies is divided into two curricula, one philosophical and one historical, each of which allows the student a specific qualification of his programs through a path of scholarship either in the historical field or in the philosophical field, with the achievement of knowledge and skills specific to each research area.

What do you learn?

The course provides students with a solid knowledge of the history of philosophy and the history of humanity from antiquity to the present day and a well-structured understanding of the developments in philosophical, socio-political and economic systems. The course of study aims at fostering critical learning of the main problems of theoretical, logical-epistemological and linguistic, philosophical-scientific, socio-historical, ethical-political, religious and aesthetic research, as well as the acquisition of the structured knowledge in the areas of psychological disciplines, sociological, pedagogical and anthropological disciplines, while aiming at the acquisition of an adequate mastery of the variety of research methods and tools in the philosophical and historical field as well as in the socio-psycho-pedagogical and anthropological field. Students are also expected to achieve B1-level linguistic competences in at least one language of the European Union.

What can you do with it?

Possible work perspectives for graduates in Philosophical and Historical Studies are:

  • Copywriter: able to create, draft and edit texts for advertising messages in agencies or as a freelancer;
  • In order to acquire the necessary editorial skills, the course includes a digital publishing workshop and an internship at the University Press;
  • Organiser of Conferences, Exhibitions, Cultural Events;
  • Cultural operator;
  • Management secretary;
  • Press office and external communication collaborator.
More coherent with the profile of the philosophical curriculum are positions in the human resources management services, for which further training and/or professionalisation is also required (first-level Master's degree) to implement the theoretical and methodological knowledge acquired in the Philosophy degree. The history curriculum is particularly relevant to positions that require specific historical research skills, good understanding and interpretation of historical sources:
  • Librarian;
  • Genealogist;
  • Editor of technical texts that specifically concern the fields of historical research.
