Specific objectives:

The master’s degree course in ‘International Relations’ aims to train specialists capable of in-depth and critical analysis of political systems, the relationships that exist between them, the geopolitical areas, the reasons for tensions and conflicts, the modalities of resolutions of these conflicts, the role of international organizations, including the EU.
In particular, the aim is to provide solid advanced level training, extending and strengthening knowledge especially as regards the internationalist approach of historical-political, economic and political science disciplines.
The interdisciplinary approach and the in-depth study of several geo-political areas also contribute to further expanding skills and knowledge and allow the development of understanding and analytical skills useful for solving problems that arise in working contexts in which master’s graduates they will find themselves working.
The advanced and in-depth knowledge of historical-legal and economic-political issues then allows the master’s degree graduate to have a profile that is both professional and flexible, as required by the social partners consulted, which makes him able to organize and manage projects, to apply their knowledge and skills for the analysis and resolution of new problems, as well as to develop those skills, which, starting from the knowledge and skills acquired, are able to be put to use in construction and mediation contexts.
To this end, the use of teaching methods which enhance, through the seminar discussion, the ability to synthesize complex texts or texts centered on specific cases in both written and oral form, and finally the drafting of a thesis, allow the master’s graduate to broaden his communication and presentation skills.
As regards the study of languages, which is particularly qualifying from a professional point of view, the prior assessment of English at level B2 is required, while the study of an additional non-EU language (Chinese or Arabic) is envisaged during the course.
