This PhD program seeks to cultivate a variety of scientific perspectives for examining social phenomena and, at the same time, to build cross-disciplinary bridges between them.
For this reason, the program has three areas of specialization to fulfill this purpose:
- Communication, culture, and society
- Socio-economic dynamics
- Politics and society
The program is made up of eight semester periods, from which students must accredit:
4 interdisciplinary seminars
4 specialization seminars
8 research seminars, based on a student-advisor relationship, with a colloquium every semester to present and discuss progress on the thesis.
The interdisciplinary and specialization seminars are taken in the first four semesters, and all are face-to-face. In the four remaining semesters students do not have to attend class so that they can focus on their research full time.
