The Ph.D. programme in Sociology has a longstanding tradition of excellence in Italy. The aim of the programme is to provide structured training in theoretically-guided empirical research across a wide range of sociological fields and to introduce students to current international debates in both qualitative and quantitative social research. 

The course consists of a three-year programme. The first year is devoted to basic training, in conjunction with the activities of the NASP interdisciplinary Graduate School in Social and Political Sciences. The second year is partly spent in a relevant university department abroad and is devoted to the initial drafting of the thesis. The third year is entirely spent completing the thesis. All classes and teaching activities are in English. 

Graduates will be able to compete successfully for positions as researchers (in public and private universities and research centers), skilled professionals and consultants in sociology to public agencies and international organizations and institutions in Italy and elsewhere in Europe. 

The research areas covered by the PhD Programme include: 

  • Culture and consumption
