Academic Offer

Master’s Degree in
Foundations and Perspectives for a Culture of Unity


The IUS confers an academic Master’s Degree in Foundations and Perspectives for a Culture of Unity.


The path of studies has an integrated path in Culture of Unity, as
well as three specializations: Economy and Management, Trinitarian Ontology, Political Studies.


The program has a double objective:

- through an interdisciplinary approach, it gives access to the foundations of a knowledge base that expresses the human being in his/her unity and places itself at the service of a complex society, in the challenging context of our time;

- it offers  tools to apply  this approach to qualified perspectives in different academic specializations.


Diploma in
Foundations and Perspectives for a Culture of Unity

What is learned

The IUS gives a diploma in ‘Foundations and Perspectives for a Culture of Unity’ with a certificate at the end of a year-long program of studies. It is designed for students and young people already committed in an academic or professional field, for whom it is not possible to accede to the two-year Master’s Degree program.



In the inter and trans-disciplinary perspectives courses offer a foundation for a Culture of Unity  and, in a personalized program, instructions describing the specific ways such a culture impacts the various disciplinary and professional fields.



Research Doctorates

Subject areas

A research Doctorate is the highest level of instruction available in 
the educational system and aims to teach the specific competences 
necessary to exercise research activities at universities, public 
institutions and private entities.




At the IUS it is possible to pursue an ordinary Doctorate in ‘Foundations and Perspectives for a Culture of Unity’ in the following core areas:


• Civil Economy and Economy of Communion
• Epistemology and Logic
• Philosophy
• Research in Social Sciences


• Trans-disciplinary Research
• Political Studies
• Theology



Post-Doctoral Studies

Who is it for?

The Post-Doctoral School is organized as an academic itinerary in which various disciplines are introduced in the IUS university life to further
develop, together with on-site professors, research programs in tune
with the academic scope of the Institute.




Such a plan of studies is open to young researchers through a scholarship program, for a period of two or more years, and professors from other universities who wish to spend a period of time at the IUS for research purposes.




Understanding Protocols with other institutions


The structure of courses and programs at the Sophia University Institute corresponds to the European standard and the exams and academic
degrees are recognized according to international agreements, as well
as parameters established by the Convention of Lisbon and by the Process
of Bologna.


The international agreement for recognizing degrees is applied according to the stipulations in specific executive conventions between university Institutions.  Furthermore, the Master’s Degree granted by the IUS is integrally recognized by some countries of South America.
