Requirements: a first class or strong upper second-class graduate degree (or equivalent international qualifications)
Duration: One year
Language: English


One of a kind, the course, that will be held partly in Rome and partly in Moscow, offers highly-innovative contents in the field of international relations by the means of a multidisciplinary methodology.

The Master will provide participants with stage opportunities at bodies and enterprises that enjoy partnerships with Russian counterparts.

Eligible candidates are those who, at the time of submission of their applications, hold a five-years Bachelor’s Degree according to the new Italian academic system; or a Bachelor’s Degree in the frame of the old Italian academic system; or another corresponding educational qualification in international studies obtained from a foreign University.


The objective of the Master programme is to provide students with a solid understanding of the globalisation phenomenon in all of its dimensions (worldwide markets for goods and services, capital and labour/migration, political science, philosophy, the planetary challenge of the environment and sustainable development).

It also offers insights and tools with which to analyse and affect the impact of globalisation on local development. As such due consideration is given to the complexity of local-global interactions in the multifaceted arenas of globalisation with a focus on Italian, Mediterranean and Russian Societies and the New World Order.

Graduates have also gone on to successful careers in many different countries and areas of employment such as international organisations, the media, government, business and finance.


About the course: Premise

Globalisation affects the lives of people all around the world. It does so in many different ways. The closing down of factories in Europe due to strong competition from developing countries providing cheaper labour, has produced a new, economically disconnected, underclass in western societies.

This class’s dissatisfaction affects policy at local, national and international levels. At the same time, migrants attempt to cross the Mediterranean Sea in fragile, overfull boats, in the hope of gaining a share of Europe’s riches. The determination of these migrants indicates that there’s still a strong divide in prosperity levels between the Global North and South.


About the course: Outcomes

In the Master’s students will also study the various dimensions and aspects of globalisation and migration and how Italian and Russian Societies have absorbed the new agenda of the 21st century.

The main aim is to gain a better understanding of the changing relationships of global and local societies through the rise of social and spatial inequalities.

Students will come to learn that these are brought about by global processes, migration and mobility and the emergence of transnational identities, which may contrast with local orientations that may be part of the same multicultural societies. The direct focus will be on the effects on the Italian and Russian Societies.

Eligible candidates are those who hold passports from the Mediterranean area (extra EU) or from the Middle East area, at the time of submission of their applications and hold either a Master Degree or a Post Graduate Degree.
