Piano didattico

The master’s degree in Global Politics and Society addresses the above-mentioned task, relying on a genuinely multidisciplinary approach, developed through a coherent path consisting of:

  • a core package of six compulsory courses – meant to provide an advanced training in the fields of political science and sociology, complemented by key competences in the area of law and economics (48 credits);
  • five elective courses, that allow students to strengthen their competences in specific thematic areas, within a rich offer of options (36 credits);
  • other additional elective and optional activities (15 credits);
  • a research dissertation (21 credits).
