What is a Minor
A Minor is a taught study course composed of three modules of 6 ECTS each, that allow you to widen your studies with a glimpse at subjects that fall outside of your principal subject.
Passing the three exams required by the Minor, you will get a certification of the course you attended.

Objectives and contents
This Minor makes some basic epistemological and philosophical-linguistic tools available to students of other degree programmes (in particular to those studying Economic and Scientific degrees) with specific attention to the methodological and operative aspects of the respective areas.
To facilitate the application and demonstrate the usability of these tools to which the students will be introduced, in each module the purely philosophical analysis will be accompanied by examples, thought experiments and case studies in different fields of work and research.
This Minor is taught in Italian.
This Minor is aimed at Bachelor’s degree students at the university.
