The Department of Human Sciences welcomes faculty members and students who have a strong predisposition towards humanistic disciplines.

The Department’s mission is to provide a wide range of interdisciplinary research networks, collaborating, at national and international level, with universities and top-class research centers. This transdisciplinary structure encourages and maximizes the quality and scientific productivity of the Department’s research activities, an expertise and excellence that produced over 800 scientific publications in Italy and abroad.

Research Areas and Objectives

The Department promotes and coordinates the research activities in the following “macro-areas of research”:

  • Humanities;
  • Linguistic Sciences;
  • Social Sciences;
  • Psychological Sciences;
  • Education Sciences;
  • Philosophical Sciences.

The Department of Human Sciences purports research activities to achieve institutional objectives, these include:

  1. Research and experimentation activities
    • Collaborates with national and international research centers, to promote, coordinate and develop, individual and group studies and research in the various scientific-disciplinary sectors and six «macro-areas of research» of competence, including :
      1. Humanities;
      2. Linguistic sciences area – Linguistic Sciences;
      3. Social Sciences;
      4. Psychological Sciences;
      5. Education Sciences;
      6. Philosophical Sciences.
    • Promotes and coordinates a wide network of research collaborations with universities and research centers of excellence, in Italy and abroad, with interdisciplinary partnerships at national and international level;
    • Disseminates the results of study and research activities, with adequate documentation and information activities;
    • Promotes, develops and manages the publication of studies, articles, essays, volumes and research of scientific interest;
    • Organizes seminars, conferences, workshops and initiatives of a scientific and cultural nature, in collaboration with universities and research centers in Italy and abroad.
  2. Third mission:
    • The Department operates in the sphere of the third mission, favoring the direct application, exploitation and use of knowledge to contribute to the social, cultural, scientific and economic development of contemporary society.
      Alongside the top-class research, a central strategic objective of the Department is to implement the challenge of the third mission, which allows a free and open confrontation with cultural life, in order to respond to vital needs for a professional, social, civil and democratic growth of contemporary society.
  3. Training activities:
    • Promotes, coordinates and implements a program of updating and continuing education on the specific cultural issues of the Department;
    • Promotes research doctorate projects in coordination with other University facilities;
    • Promotes teaching programs in an educational context that meet the qualification and training needs of highly specialized professional profiles;
    • Promotes training in areas of innovative scientific and disciplinary research, including through specialization courses, bachelor degree and post-graduate degree (Master di primo e secondo livello) and the granting of post-graduate scholarships and research doctorates.

Given these points, the Department of Human Sciences (Human Sciences) focuses on a multidisciplinary scientific approach that translates in:

  • A research community able to dialogue with the problems and emerging issues of contemporary society. The goal is to share a strategy, a methodology and a research network that enhance the different disciplinary logic to promote research activities and areas of interest in terms of investigation, teaching and professional creation.
  • A training offer anchored to the progress of the most qualified scientific research, to the reference professional contexts and updated at national and international level.

The various disciplines and the different scientific-disciplinary sectors contribute to support and promote an innovative educational and training offer, aimed at enhancing disciplinary knowledge and methodological skills to build concrete professional environments. Given the contemporary cultural, social and economic scenario, influenced by the technological and scientific transformation, the offer undergoes constant updates, to meet the professional and individual demands.

The multimedia (methods of) teaching adopted by Guglielmo Marconi University platform favors the use of active methodologies that involve users in the processes of knowledge generation in a participatory, creative and collaborative dimension. For design and audiovisual production and multimedia activities, the Department avails of the Multimedia Production Center of the Guglielmo Marconi University.

In the constantly evolving world, we have to face great challenges, which are aimed at satisfying social, health, economic, and energy needs on the one hand, and on the other, require us not to compromise the development of new generations and the environment.

This vision is based on three foundations, which must be considered in the developed design solutions:


AI, IoT, Big Data and ultra-broadband communications networks are increasingly changing the economy and society. Combining the development of robots and intelligence in machines (which is becoming more and more pervasive) with brain functions and social development.


Every project, every development, every technology must be sustainable not only economically but also for the environment. That is, it must be able to keep the balance among people and between people and the environment.


People need to have confidence in the tools they use on a daily basis and at work. Drones, autonomous vehicles and software on devices must be transparent to the person, aiming at comfort and quality of life. Even the information retrieved online and other services such as education and health must be transparent and not guided by different logics.

Research Areas and Objectives
