Planning of educational activities first semester a.y. 2020/21

Dear students,
in sight of the start of lessons, scheduled for our Faculty for next Monday 5 October, I turn to you for a welcome, to the freshmen, and a welcome back, to all the others. They are meant to be hospitable, warm and bright, despite the pouring rain I see from the window of my office right now.
Even if, as you know, the resumption of academic activities, to ensure the safety of all, still takes place with access to the premises according to a shifts regulated by a special App, with the lessons the ordinary life of the Faculty fully resumes. In this ordinary life the more authentic value of the university experience is kept: the encounter between persons in a mutual educational journey.

Within the Laurea magistrale "Politiche Europee e Internazionali", students can apply for a bilingual (Italian and German) Double Degree Programme in collaboration with the Martin Luther Universität Halle-Wittenberg. At the end, students will be granted both the Italian degree (Laurea magistrale) and the German degree Master of Science Europäische Integration und Regionale Entwicklung

The Faculty specifically fosters internationalisation as a key theme in learning and teaching: both in the specific contents of the courses, in its compliance with the standards acknowledged by the international academic community and also by boosting the presence of visiting scholars, when possible, in curricular teaching or in dedicated seminars.

The Faculty

Understanding the society in which we live is crucial for being able to act responsibly and with awareness in every field and to grow into professionals who are able to influence across several contexts. To be able to comprehend the complexities of real-word challenges in a society that is in continuous and rapid change, nowadays, even more so than in the past, it is essential to combine different points of view: from the economic viewpoint to law, politics, psychology, sociology and history.
