The Master’s Degree programme in Comparative international relations engages in the linguistic and cultural study of Europe, as well as Eastern Europe, Asia, and the Atlantic world typical of the tradition of Ca’ Foscari and, in this sense, represents a unique offer in Italy for the study of international relations associated with those foreign languages and cultures, of the rights and of the international economy. Students will be able to study real issues through the study of specific disciplines pertinent to different cultural and geopolitical areas with a specific focus on the Americas, the Mediterranean, Eastern Europe, Asia, and their politics for the economic development corresponding to the many paths of study.

The course provides solid linguistic, legal and economic training common to all students as well as in-depth comparative studies in the political, cultural, geographic and sociological fields through study programmes on specific geopolitical areas.

  • Europe - Asian Orient
  • Inter Mediterranean
