Learning objectives

Knowledge and understanding The course aims to give students the cognitive tools to understand the social, cultural and political dynamics that have marked the transition to reflective modernity. 2. More properly, the course aims to focus on how the most relevant changes related to the macro level (institutional level) are reflected in the biographies of individual life, interpersonal and gender relations and the interrelation between individual-society (macro level). Applying knowledge and understanding 1. At the end of the course of study the student will be able to use sociological knowledge (theories, paradigms of reference and empirical data) to design or coordinate educational services in socio-cultural contexts with high levels of complexity, 2. More properly, the student will be able to use sociological knowledge in the light of the most relevant processes of de-institutionalization and privatization of individual life biographies.

Prerequisites and basic notions

There are no specific prerequisites different from those required for access to the master's degree programme.


A) First part: After analyzing the concept of culture and its repercussions in sociological reflection, through the text of Charles Taylor we will deepen the dynamics that characterize the second modernity. Above all, the position of the subject within the social context and the relational, cultural and social changes to which he is subject.
Topics :
- concept of culture
- introduction to globalization processes
- the moral order of modernity: rationality, ethics of responsibility
- modernity / post-modernity: the radicalization of processes
- the limits of a reading of modernity only as a development of the capitalist economy
B) Second part: the theme of reflective modernity will be addressed starting from the perspective of economism, privatism and the development of technologies in the field of reproduction.
- the new social imaginaries: the rediscovery of feelings, the ethics of self-realization
- changes in intimate and family relationships
- the commercialization of intimate life
- nature and technique: the risks of a liberal genetics

PLEASE NOTE: In order to be admitted to any teaching activities, including those of your choice, you must be enrolled in the academic year in which the activities in question are offered. Students who are about to graduate in the December and April sessions are therefore advised NOT to undertake extracurricular activities in the new academic year in which they are not enrolled, as these graduation sessions are valid for students enrolled in the previous academic year. Therefore, students who undertake an activity in an academic year in which they are not enrolled will not be granted CFU credits.

Stage e Tirocini

Per le altre attività formative (crediti F) sono previsti 9 cfu (pari a 225 ore) da acquisire solamente attraverso l’attività di tirocinio obbligatoria, a sua volta suddivisa in:

  • tirocinio indiretto (1 cfu: 25 ore di frequenza obbligatoria in università per il 75%) in preparazione dell’attività formativa sul campo;
  • tirocinio diretto (8 cfu), da svolgersi presso enti convenzionati.

L’ordinamento didattico della LM in Scienze pedagogiche prevede che il tirocinio indiretto a frequenza obbligatoria si svolga in università per il 75% nel secondo anno (1 CFU: 25 ore).
Il tirocinio indiretto consiste in un accompagnamento iniziale delle/degli studenti da parte dei tutor attraverso un percorso di formazione della durata di 25 ore.
La finalità di questo percorso è quella di preparare le/gli studenti alla particolare forma di apprendimento costituita dal tirocinio, dotandoli di conoscenze e strumenti adeguati a osservare, comprendere e rielaborare criticamente l’esperienza di tirocinio nei servizi educativi e ad affrontare il tirocinio negli enti con metodo e consapevolezza.
Il percorso, da attuare in gruppi da 20-25 persone sotto la supervisione di un tutor proveniente dal mondo professionale di educatori e pedagogisti, risponde alle esigenze costantemente espresse sia dalle/dagli studenti stessi sia dalle parti sociali che dai referenti degli enti convenzionati.
