The Department of Humanities, Social Sciences and Education, in line with its scientific-cultural orientation places strong emphasis on the integration of teaching and research by approaching cultural phenomena from varied perspectives and offering four different Degree programmes. The strong commitment to interdisciplinary research among scholars contributes positively to the quality of teaching in both undergraduate and post-graduate programmes. In addition, the Department has established effective working relationships with institutions, organizations and public and private entities which provide both students and PhD candidates with training opportunities and connections with the professional community. The large number of publications proves the intense scientific activity of our Department whose research is further strengthened by the participation in international and national collaborations as well as by the organization of yearly workshops, seminars and conferences. The various activities organised in the Department ensure a fruitful dialogue with both national and international research and education settings, while still paying attention to the local context in which the University of Molise is rooted.
