Thu Jul 16 21:14:52 GMT 2020

The SOMET (Sociology and Methodology of Social Research) PhD, jointly run by the University of Milan and the University of Turin, is now accepting applications for the 36th cycle of studies, starting in the fall of 2020.

Applicants will be admitted ONLY with a scholarship. There are 6 scholarships available for the upcoming cycle.

SOMET is one of the leading sociological PhD Programmes in Italy.

Entirely held in English, its courses, seminars and research activities are organised jointly by the University of Milan and the University of Turin. Its Faculty also includes sociologists from other Italian and international universities.

The Ph.D. programme in Sociology has a longstanding tradition of excellence in Italy. It was one of the first to be established after the

1980 university reform and has provided a large number of outstanding academic sociologists who have gone on to make significant contributions to teaching and research in Italy and abroad.

The aim of the programme is to provide structured and advanced training in theoretically-guided empirical research across a wide range of sociological fields and to introduce students to current international issues in both qualitative and quantitative social research.

The course consists of a three-year programme made of 60 credits per year. The first year is devoted to basic training, in conjunction with the activities of the Faculty's interdisciplinary Graduate School in Social and Political Sciences. The second year is partly spent in a relevant university department abroad and is devoted to the initial drafting of the thesis. The third year is entirely spent completing the thesis.

From 2019-2020 a new partnership will be activated with *Vrije Universiteit Brussel*. Several joint-degrees are currently active also with several French Universities, among which the *Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales* (EHESS) in Paris.Graduates will be able to compete successfully for positions as researchers (in public and private universities and research centers), skilled professionals and consultants in sociology to public agencies and international organizations and institutions in Italy and elsewhere in Europe.
