The degree program in International and Diplomatic Sciences has a strongly interdisciplinary focus between the fields of economics, law, linguistics, political science, sociology, and history. It examines issues of international and European significance, providing basic knowledge of different geographical and geopolitical areas.

The course involves the in-depth study of at least two European Union languages, in addition to Italian.

The traditional didactic activity is complemented by additional forms of learning, which enable the student to develop a profitable interaction with the outside world in which he or she will operate. For example:

  • a wide range of lectures, seminars and meetings with lecturers and experts, including external ones (visiting professors) on topical issues
  • cultural exchanges of faculty and students within the framework of international and European programs, such as LLP Erasmus, CINDA, AVERROES
  • stays at embassies, consulates and international bodies
  • internships at domestic and foreign companies
