The program allows students to achieve the academic degrees granted by the Faculty of Social Sciences: Baccalaureate, Licentiate and Doctorate, in a way that is compatible with work commitments. It is for people who are engaged in a professional activity and cannot regularly attend courses. It follows the European scheme of the “European Qualification Framework” (EQF).
People who already have an Italian degree, or an international equivalent, or a pontifical university degree, in a subject related to social sciences, may see their formation credits already acquired for the various degrees recognized by the faculty. Likewise, even those who do not have a post-high school degree can have their work and professional experience recognized and be exempt from certain elements of the program, according to the European EQF recognition process.
Students in the program are required to attend one Saturday a month from October to May (8 times per year on dates set at the beginning of the academic year) and during an intensive week in June. One can enter the program either in October (1st semester) or in February (II semester).
Tutorial meetings (mandatory) focus on interdisciplinary topics in social sciences and provide personalized learning support.
Courses and Exams
Each TUTOR student in the first two cycles must take a series of examinations agreed upon with the Dean for each year chosen from the Faculty’s regular program and take all the exams and hand in the written papers required to receive the mark for the annual program seminar. TUTOR students of the third cycle must attend the Course for Doctorate Students and take three other examinations, agreed with the Dean, with one year of required attendance in the TUTOR Program seminar, and fulfill all the requirements to receive the mark for the annual program seminar.
The Faculty staff provides each student with the assistance necessary to solve technical-administrative problems and to organize and carry out their studies. Students are held responsible to fulfill all the requirements that are compulsory for all FASS students, except for those from which they have been individually dispensed.
