Kategori: Beasiswa
Italy: PhD Studenthips Political Theory at Luiss University-Rome
Deadline for applications is September 1st, 2006

The Luiss University of Rome (Italy) announces the third Call for Applications for its Doctoral Program in Political Theory for the academic year 2006-2007. Luiss University welcomes graduate students who are willing to work within an stimulating international intellectual community. Admission to the Ph.D. program in Political Theory at Luiss is competitive, because despite the number of applications, we can offer only a small number of positions. For the current academic year, eight (8) positions will be available, of which, four (4) will be granted an annual scholarship, covering the entire length of the program.

The length of the program is three(3)years of full-time academic research, including three terms of full coursework, Candidates are also expected to complete a dissertation within this limit.


The Luiss PhD Program in Political Theory is centered on an interdisciplinary perspective. The program covers four main areas of study: philosophy (ethics and applied philosophy, political and social philosophy, and issues in contemporary philosophy), political theory (ethics of international relations and human rights theories), law (international law, humanitarian law, and international criminal law), and politics and economics (international political economy, development policies, sustainability theories, international relations, and theories of globalization).

Currently, about twenty faculty members teach in the program. They include both Italian professors and several international visiting professors. Starting nextyear, we will host 25 students, roughly half of whom are international.

Applicants are required to have majored in an area of social sciences, human sciences, or philosophy; however, applicants who have degrees in other disciplines can also considered on the basis of their curricula vitae and research proposals. Students at Luiss are admitted only to obtain a PhD degree; there will be no MA program in Political Theory at Luiss this year. All students who are admitted will begin their study at Luiss in the Spring semester of 2006. The average yearly course-load ranges from six to ten hours per week and each term is approximately three months long. The PhD Program is an English language program and all courses are taught in English.
