The Master's degree programme in Philosophical Sciences provides graduates with an in-depth knowledge of the contents and methods of philosophical investigation, while promoting specialist training in various research fields.
Without prejudice to the need for a broad and general philosophical training, two reasons call for specialization in the area of philosophical studies during the Master's programme.
Firstly, specialist training allows graduates to become aware of the specificity and complexity of problems, both theoretical and practical, as required of a professional nowadays.
Secondly, over the last decades the areas of philosophical research have become increasingly rich and diverse. Not only do they provide specific content and reasoning tools aimed at developing critical ability, they also deepen relationships with various fields of study including: psychology, linguistics, information technology, art, history, sociology, political science, anthropology, pedagogy, biology, physics, mathematics.
In addition to reflecting on itself and its methods, philosophy offers tools to question and deepen the conceptual foundations of any discipline: it reconstructs the history of theoretical notions, provides new analysis tools, questions the ethical and political implications of actions and behaviours, and it can only do so through well-defined and differentiated paths. Hence the need to structure the programme as several curricula offering diverse study paths, with a view to specialisation in philosophical research as well as to pre-professional education.
Therefore, students enrolled in the Master's degree programme in Philosophical Sciences are called to identify a research field among those proposed, to deepen their philosophical training with a rigorous and specialist approach.
For this purpose, the degree programme requires graduates to follow orientation courses in Year I, and specialist courses in their chosen field in Year II, while exploring the multiple interactions with related and complementary disciplines. The knowledge, skills and competences gained allow students to write and discuss their thesis at a specialist level.
The main areas in which the degree programme is structured focus on: the historical dimension of philosophical thought; the theoretical, moral and aesthetic foundations of contemporaneity; the study of society in its anthropological, sociological, political, ethical and philosophical dimensions; logic, language and the theory of mind, also in relation to the developments of contemporary scientific research.
The graduate in Philosophical Sciences may:
- fill in strategic, organizational and communication roles in the public administration, and in public or private, national or international companies;
- work in the field of traditional and multimedia publishing;
- carry out professional activities in the communication sector;
- carry out professional activities in the field of philosophical counselling;
- coordinate working groups as a cultural mediator.

Graduates in Philosophical Sciences will be able to:
- conduct independent research in the context of doctoral or research programs in philosophy and related sciences in Italy and abroad;
- teach the fundamentals of philosophy, history, pedagogy and demographic anthropology in upper secondary schools, provided that they have earned the number of university credits required for each subject area (during their whole academic career, including Bachelor?s and Master?s degree, single courses, 24-credit programme for teacher training, and credits acquired in the frame of other degree programmes);
- fill in management and coordination roles in the public administration;
- work in HR recruiting and development, communication, intercompany relations, and cultural programmes in public and private organisations;
- work as editorial director, or manuscript editor;
- work as cultural event manager, or copywriter;
- work in corporate and work-life balance counselling;
- work in promoting cooperation in the workplace or otherwise in multi-cultural societies.

Proficiency in English at a B1 level or higher under the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) is required for admission.
The B1-level requirement will be ascertained by the University Language Centre (SLAM) upon admission as follows:
- Language certificate at or above B1, obtained no more than three years earlier. For the list of language certificates recognized by the University please review: (https://www.unimi.it/en/node/39267). The certificate must be uploaded when submitting the online application;
- English level achieved during a University of Milan degree programme and certified by the University Language Centre (SLAM) no more than four years before the date of admission application, including levels based on language certificates submitted by the applicants during their Bachelor's degree at the University of Milan. In this case the process is automatic, the applicant does not have to attach any certificates to the application;
- Placement test administrated by the University Language Centre (SLAM) according to the calendar published on the website: (https://www.unimi.it/en/node/39267)
All those who fail to submit a valid certificate or do not meet the required proficiency level will be instructed during the admission procedure to take the placement test.
Applicants who do not take or pass the placement test will be required to obtain a language proficiency certificate recognized by the University (see: https://www.unimi.it/en/node/39322) and deliver it to the SLAM via the InformaStudenti service by December 31, 2024 (https://www.unimi.it/en/node/39267/).
Applicants who do not meet the requirement by said deadline will not be admitted to the master's degree programme and may not sit any further tests.

Admission assessment
The Master's degree programme in Philosophical Sciences does not have capped enrolment; any student meeting the eligibility requirements appearing above may be admitted.
Students earning a score of 95 or above on their final thesis will be deemed to have the proper educational background for the programme.
Students earning a score of less than 95 must pass an interview, which may be held virtually or in person.
Graduates of the University of Milan (class L-5), who earned a final score at or above 95, will be automatically admitted into the programme, as they meet curricular requirements.
Students must select a track within the Master's degree programme upon submitting their application.
The Master's Degree Programme in Philosophical Sciences has had Erasmus-exchange partnerships with other European universities for over ten years. The programme keeps students up-to-date on these, encouraging them to take advantage of the opportunities these exchanges offer. In recent years, the Erasmus scholarship programme is posted to the University's website, and is presented to philosophical science students through a special meeting organised by the Department's Erasmus manager, where students are given an introduction to the various campuses, and different options for specialising in philosophy. Given the vast number of campus options, all philosophical areas are covered through the various available campuses: history of philosophy, theoretical philosophy, moral philosophy, aesthetics, philosophy of language, logic, and philosophy of science. The various locations also offer the opportunity for students to take exams in subjects other than philosophy.
Candidates are selected by a commission made up of Department teachers, who assess the student's interests, their academic career, and their proficiency in the language of the country where they hope to study.
Admitted students will fill out the Learning Agreement with the Erasmus manager. Once abroad, they will correspond via email with the manager regarding any changes. Students submitting a Learning Agreement to the Erasmus manager via email will receive it back e-signed. They may then have their host university countersign the document prior to their return home.
Upon returning home, any exams the student has taken whilst abroad (documented in the "Transcript of Records") are converted into Italian exams based on the Learning Agreement; exam conversion and the marks for the same shall be subject to approval of the Academic Board for Philosophy.
Current international agreements are available at the following link: https://www.unimi.it/en/international/university-milan-world/internatio…
