Structure of Studies

The PhD programme includes two main phases.

The first phase, in the 1st year, is spent at the NASP Graduate School in Social and Political Sciences - Department of Social and Political Sciences of the University of Milan.
Students must earn 60 credits through compulsory coursework and examinations (45 credits, typically 13 classes), research project advancement (6 credits), attendance to international and peer seminars, conferences & summer schools (9 credits).

The second phase (2nd and 3rd years) implies research, visiting periods and dissertation writing under the supervision of a member of the Faculty board.
PhD students may be involved in teaching activities as tutors and they are encouraged to present their preliminary works at the main national and international conferences.

The second year is partly spent abroad on visiting and is devoted to finalize the research design, conduct the empirical research and initial drafting of the dissertation. The third year is dedicated to the completion of the empirical research and to writing the doctoral thesis which has to be submitted to the Faculty board by the end of the 3rd year for admission to external review.

 

Review process, thesis completion and VIVA
The dissertation is then reviewed by two external referees who may: i) admit the candidate to the VIVA; ii) requires amendments and revisions. In the latter case, up to six months may be allowed to revise the thesis before admission to the VIVA. The examining committee is usually composed of three members.
