The Master of Arts in International Studies (MAIS) is a two-year program (120 ECTS) taught in English which provides students the opportunity to study with an interdisciplinary approach and in an international environment. Our IS curriculum is conceived to offer students the necessary instruments of analysis and understanding of contemporary global dynamics. It focuses on the political, economic, and legal aspects of globalization, human rights, peace and conflict resolution, development and related environmental issues. Our IS program combines different disciplinary insights, including history, international relations, international law and organizations, macroeconomics and financial regulation. It aims at providing students with the necessary epistemic tools to study and approach contemporary international challenges such as sustainability, nuclear proliferation, human security, migration, and gender issues.
Core courses are supplemented by a wide range of departmental electives, that allow students to develop expertise in their areas of interest. The program is run by an academic community trained both in Italy and overseas whose research interests and collaboration ensure its members a significant degree of experience and contacts in Europe, Asia, Africa, and both North and South America. Their teaching fully benefits from such cultural and academic background. Likewise, students can amply profit from the many collaborations our department promotes with research institutes and foreign universities.
