Given its interdisciplinary and comparative nature, the Laurea Magistralis in World Politics and International Relations provides students with a broad perspective on current global issues, an understanding of the genesis and the evolution of major international changes, and an ability to recognize and evaluate their theoretical and practical outcomes.
This broad-based training in international affairs offers a solid basis for careers in national diplomatic services, in International Governmental Organizations (including European organizations), and in NGOs, as well as positions for analysts and consultants in internationally oriented private and public companies, public administrations, and research institutes. It also offers the basis for continued university studies at the Ph.D. level.
“The experience as a WPIR student has represented an authentic growth path both at the academic level and as a human being. Having the chance to debate and exchange views concerning historical and political processes of evolution in the international relations among countries with other colleagues from all over the world has been a great experience of learning and improvement. Thanks to our professors we always had the possibility to spend time studying and reflecting on global issues of great interest from several perspectives. As a WPIR Student I also had the chance to experience a period of time abroad doing an internship in Madrid where I truly applied most of the skills I have achieved and strengthened during our course classes.”
“I consider World Poltics and International Relations a valid educational experience that has enriched and strengthened my oratory, organizational and team-working skills, qualities that are increasingly demanded in any work context. Besides, the English language is a necessary tool for breaking down the communication barriers that hinder personal growth. Other important elements are the projects provided in order to undertake study-trips abroad. For example, I had the opportunity, through the scholarship ‘Fund for Cooperation and Knowledge’ to conduct my research thesis in Chile. In my opinion, being in an unknown place, where people speak a different language, allowed travelers to “compete” with themselves, to get involved and hence, to improve.”
“The WPIR Master program was an inspiring and challenging adventure that provided me with what I consider the most important experience of my life. At the beginning of 2014, thanks to the suggestion of one of my professors, I applied for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship aiming at preparing my Master final paper on EU democracy promotion. In September 2014 I left Milano to reach Tunis, where I spent nine beautiful months reading, interviewing and discovering a new country, its people and its culture.”
