Education objectives

This doctoral program aims to provide a thorough and critical understanding of the key analytical perspectives within the area of Global Studies, as well as to enable autonomous research practice at the meeting point of several sub-areas of study and research within this multidisciplinary academic area. The accomplishment of these objectives will be ensured by a curriculum that combines i) a pre-defined curriculum structure and the possibility of building learning pathways chosen by students themselves; ii) specialized
training which promotes, at the same time, multidisciplinary learning, enhanced by the decidedly interdisciplinary nature of the various seminars; iii) working methodologies linking teaching, tutorial mentoring and integration within research projects - coordinated by teaching staff/researchers - with students gradually assuming more responsibility for their work - through learning and research options.
