POLITICAL SCIENCES

Master’s Degree

Sophia’s Master’s in International Politics and Law confers skills to understand the transformations in progress in the current political framework and to intervene in it. The program analyses the strategic and ideological changes in the European and international scenario and orients the emerging paradigms in the light of a culture of unity. Each student is a central player in the course. The theoretical subjects provide the know-what and prepare for the subsequent research work. Collaboration at the international level with parliamentarians, diplomats, civil servants and public administrators, leaders of civil society organizations, makes possible a broad dialogue to deepen and test the know-how for action.

"Learning to solve conflicts and work for justice, to build free and collaborative political societies"
