OFFER DESCRIPTION

The International PhD Programme (double-degree) in Contemporary Humanism is instituted for the 36th Cycle at LUMSA University (Rome) in partnership with Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile (PUC) - Santiago/Chile, Australian Catholic University (ACU) - Sydney/Australia and Institut Catholique de Paris (ICP) - Paris/France and Universidade Catolica Portuguesa (UCP) - Lisbon/Portugal.

The International PhD Programme is regulated by the Agreement between the Partner Universities signed on 30 March 2017.

The programme aims to develop knowledge and critical skills in reading and interpreting the historical, cultural, literary, philosophical and educational tradition in its making and in its effects on the present, from the point of view of the category of "humanism". This category is very present in current debates and very promising as a tool for a critical understanding of contemporary societies, even beyond the traditional perimeter of humanistic studies.
