|University website:||Comparative International Relations|
This Comparative International Relations programme is the only one in Italy focused on International Relations that provides you with a rich understanding of international law and economics while deepening your knowledge of languages and foreign cultures. It immerses you in linguistic and cultural studies regarding Europe, Asia and the Atlantic world, something Ca’ Foscari has done since its founding in 1868, and empowers you to explore, understand and analyse international relations through juridical, economic, historical and political lenses. By the end of the programme, you will be able to fluently communicate in both English and a second language as well as elaborate coherent strategies aimed at solving problems on an international scale.
The two-year study programme equips you with a solid linguistic training as well as a familiarity with international law and economics through a combination of course work, a thesis and a curricular internship, which can be carried out in Italy or abroad.
You have 5 study paths, or curricula, to choose from, two of which are taught exclusively in English:
Each curriculum provides you with in-depth knowledge of a specific geopolitical area by exploring its political, cultural, geographic and sociological dynamics.
As a graduate with an in-depth understanding of the complex dynamics of international relations as well as a nuanced familiarity with a specific geographic area, you will be prepared to assume a position of responsibility at businesses and organizations operating in international markets, local government and regional bodies, or at national and international institutes, agencies, foundations and study centres.
