The bachelor’s degree in Political Sciences and International Studies allows students to acquire the tools useful to analyse the contemporary socio-political dynamics, both nationally and internationally, through a comparative approach to political, economic, legal and institutional studies, as well as through the analysis of the interaction between the political systems and communication techniques. Great attention is also reserved to the study of foreign languages.

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS

This Bachelor’s Degree course provides fundamental historical, political, anthropological, juridical, geo-strategic knowledge to orient, interpret, act; transmits the principles and rules of the international community, the ethics of the useful intervention; introduces the fundamental methods and contents of the main professional skills required. This major is particularly aimed at those wishing to pursue a career in the field of diplomacy and international relations, cooperation and operations in crisis areas. The changes in geopolitics are studied, especially since the end of the "cold war" to date, with particular attention to the crisis of the states, asymmetric risks and new frontiers of security. The student also deepens the themes of peace-building and post-conflict reconstruction. Also, the genesis, the factors and the variables of the "global trends" of the next decade are focused. Finally, the student works on research and data analysis for the construction of strategic scenarios.

 

At the end of the course the students will be able to:
