The master’s program in Global and European Politics is an advanced postgraduate degree focussing on the political, economic, social-ecological and cultural processes regulating contemporary societies in a globalized world. The global and regional levels are the stages at which major political challenges play out: migrations, transnational armed conflicts, environmental degradation, and climate change, organized criminality, global inequalities or poverty among others.

Understanding today’s world, therefore, means analyzing the multi-level interaction between the public (States, international organizations, etc.) and private actors (companies, networks, NGOs, etc.). These interactions are places of constant struggle for the redefinition of the rules of the game of world politics.

This program, therefore, provides students with a thorough knowledge of the formal and informal rules of global and European politics and conflicts that shape it, but also the necessary know-how and the conceptual tools to understand, analyze and act upon the world of tomorrow. Drawing on the latest developments in International Relations, Comparative Politics, Economic Governance, and European History, among others, as well as in-depth methodological training, career development, and intensive language modules, the study programme will allow students to develop innovative policies for the public and private sector, at local, national, and international level, and to govern societies in a rapidly changing world.
