What is the objective of the course? What is it?
What does it train you for?

The course is structured in two different curricula: "Political Sciences" and "International Relations". Its main objective is to provide a highly qualified and updated background knowledge of all the basic pillars of a traditional “political science” faculty. All major fields of knowledge are adequately and evenly represented in both curricula: law, economics, politics, general and specialized history, sociology, languages. Moreover, the course aims to provide a highly diversified education in an international perspective – regarding different theoretical, applied and methodological approaches – useful for future specializations in the fields of the social sciences.
