Dall'anno scorso, il corso è completamente nuovo, per offrire una formazione in linea coi cambiamenti della società
Il corso è organizzato in due curricula: Scienze della Politica e Scienze dell'Amministrazione
Nel polo didattico dell'Albergo dei Poveri trovi tutto: aule, uffici dei docenti e una magnifica biblioteca
Il corso è gestito dal Dipartimento di Scienze Politiche, che fa parte della Scuola di Scienze Sociali


The degree program provides students with basic knowledge and skills, interdisciplinary in nature, in the various disciplines related to administration and politics (particularly law, political science, economics, sociology, history), as well as the study of one or two foreign languages.
The course is divided into two curricula:

  • "Political Science," a more cultural-theoretical pathway aimed at the knowledge, intervention and management of social and political processes related to society and its government
  • .
    • "Political Science," a more cultural-theoretical path aimed at the knowledge, intervention and management of social and political processes related to the problems of society and its government
    • "Science of Administration," a more applied-professional pathway, aimed at the knowledge, intervention and management of administrative-managerial processes within complex organizations

    The educational activities include a common part of the two curricula, with the basic disciplines required in both paths, concentrated mainly in the first two years. From the second year and especially with the third, the pathways differentiate between the two curricula, with the more specific disciplines of the respective fields. Both curricula allow both direct access to the world of work and a continuation of studies in the master's degree.

    The traditional teaching activities are complemented by additional forms of learning, which allow the student to develop a fruitful interaction with the outside world. For example:

    • conferences, seminars and meetings with teachers and experts, including external ones, on topical issues
    • cultural exchanges of faculty and students within the framework of international and European programs, such as LLP Erasmus, CINDA and others
    • traineeships in public administrations and companies, including abroad

Dear* student*,
welcome to the challenge of our studies.
An incompetent doctor makes patients die. An incompetent architect causes houses to collapse. But incompetent administrators and politicians can bring down a country: the victims are indirect and less visible, but far more numerous. That is why we will work hard: we need trained and competent administrators and politicians who, each in their own field, do well what they must, not only for themselves, but for everyone.
We will do our best to help you understand society, administration and politics. It's up to you to make them work tomorrow.
Good luck.
