Subject matter

Syllabus depends on the themes of on-going theses. Relevant topics will be identified in each academic year and they will be highlighted in different activities: tutorial sessions, individual or in small groups; activities promoted by the host Research Unit (reading groups, lectures, a. o.). When possible, student’s mobility will be supported, in order to enable their participation in international or national formative contexts (workshops, summer schools, graduate conferences, a. o.), thematically related with the topics of their theses.
