The PhD Programme aims at enhancing and coordinate the skills and areas of research developed in the three Universities (Padua, Ca’ Foscari Venice and Verona), extending the territorial scope and increasing the opportunities for dialogue and scholarly debate among teachers and PhD students.
The Course intends to be a landmark, at a national and international level, for the training of young researchers and of teachers in these disciplines.
The presence, within the Course, of scientific areas such as history, physical and human geography and cultural anthropology aims at stimulating, in the research of PhD students, the learning and mastering of specific methodologies and the habit of posing open questions about the potential for cross-links both among the disciplines related to humanities research, and between the humanities and the hard-sciences.
The Programme foresees the following areas of study:
Historical-Religious and Anthropological Studies
Through the skills and competencies acquired, the PhD graduate will be able to successfully take a path towards academic research as well as teach in the historical disciplines at both a university and secondary school level. Furthermore, the methodological and critical preparation in the social sciences (in sociology and anthropology in particular) provides a background that can be applied within other professional areas (research centers, publishing houses, libraries, museums).
Admission to Doctoral Programmes is gained through a highly selective application process, subject to international attention. Yearly the call for applications is published by University of Padua.
