The International PhD Programme (double-degree) in Contemporary Humanism is instituted for the 36th Cycle at LUMSA University (Rome) in partnership with Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile (PUC) – Santiago/Chile, Australian Catholic University (ACU) – Sydney/Australia and Institut Catholique de Paris (ICP) – Paris/France and Universidade Catolica Portuguesa (UCP) – Lisbon/Portugal.
Main goals of the Programme
The PhD programme aims to develop knowledge and critical skills in reading and interpreting the historical, cultural, literary, philosophical and educational tradition in its making and in its effects on the present, from the point of view of the category of “humanism”. This category is very present in current debates and very promising as a tool for a critical understanding of contemporary societies, even beyond the traditional perimeter of humanistic studies.
The international and interdisciplinary structure of the PhD programme aims to provide an adequate context not only for an integrated “humanistic approach”, but also for an integral education of students through a contamination of styles and methods of research and teaching, beyond disciplinary and national boundaries.
3 positions will be covered by full annual scholarships of € 15.343, 28 gross.
1 position will have no scholarship and the selected candidate will have to pay enrolment fees (€ 2.356 per year).
No specific skills or qualifications required.
Nevertheless, a good knowledge of Italian and English is required (minimum B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). A good knowledge of French, Portuguese and Spanish is an asset.
The PhD programme is open to applicants who hold a second level degree (i.e. Master degree).
Applicants holding a second level degree obtained abroad have to obtain the recognition of the title by the competent authorities. In case of failure of this recognition, the application will be rejected.
Students who still do not have obtained a second level degree may also apply, but admission to the PhD programme is subject to completing the degree by 31 October 2020, under penalty of exclusion.
