Master in World Politics and International Relations

University of Pavia
Campus 2 years September 2017 Italy Pavia

The <strong>two-year taught Master (Laurea Magistralis) in World Politics and International Relations</strong> is designed to help you analyse the major issues arising out of these processes. Whether you are aiming at a career in national or international public services, in non-governmental organizations or in the private sector, you need a multidisciplinary approach to grasp the key issues. [+]

Our world is united and fragmented. Common links and challenges bind the international community together, while political phenomena are increasingly driven by regional dynamics and by conflicting national perspectives on security, wealth and identity. Globalization is still on the move along with processes of regional integration and the proliferation of new states. Military power is still concentrated at the state level, but is also becoming available to non-state actors. Technologies and information spread globally, and are variously transformed into forces for cooperation and conflict. The two-year taught Master (Laurea Magistralis) in World Politics and International Relations is designed to help you analyse the major issues arising out of these processes. Whether you are aiming at a career in national or international public services, in non-governmental organizations or in the private sector, you need a multidisciplinary approach to grasp the key issues. How are foreign policy and domestic policy related? Is regime change necessarily inconsistent with political stability? Under what conditions can power be tamed in contemporary international relations? To answer these questions, you need expertise in political science. Are contemporary international relations more or less conflict-driven than in the past? How, exactly, did the current international system arise? How did we get from Statecraft to “Globecraft”? To address contemporary challenges you need expertise in contemporary history. Is international law just a set of formal rules, or does it impact on the content of international relations? How are human rights promoted or enforced internationally? Are Mercosur and Nafta comparable to the European Union? To answer questions like these, you need regional and international expertise not only in politics but also in law. And what exactly is a human right? And what would a more just international order look like, if it were possible? To make informed judgements in these areas, you need a solid grounding in ethics. Following the long-established Italian tradition of “Political Sciences”, this Master will help you to acquire advanced skills in comparative analysis, to sharpen your analytical reasoning, and to approach world politics from a genuinely multidisciplinary perspective. Multidisciplinary approach “Political sciences” is a multidisciplinary form of study peculiar to a limited number of European countries, most notably Italy and France (scienze politiche, sciences politiques). The “political sciences” (in the plural) include political science (in the singular), but also the other social sciences (economics and sociology), together with history, and law. These other “sciences” count as “political” insofar as they focus on political phenomena, making political science a central discipline through which the other disciplines relate to one another. Pavia has produced and hosted a number of nationally and internationally renowned scholars in the political sciences. The political and legal theorist Bruno Leoni, the economist Libero Lenti, and the historian Carlo Maria Cipolla are among the figures who have established pioneering and leading schools of research at Pavia. As well as including prominent researchers in Western and European comparative politics, history, law, economics and sociology, Political Sciences at Pavia also boasts particular strengths in the study of African and Asian history and politics, and in the teaching of the Arabic, Chinese and Japanese languages. Minimal entry requirements A first (at least three-year) degree covering one or more of the humanities or social sciences and including at least 36 credits (ECTS or international equivalent) in one or more of the following areas: politics; sociology; modern or contemporary history; public, private or international law; demography; economics (not including business studies). For students taking their first degree at an Italian University, these disciplinary areas are given official classifications. The admissions committee has no discretion regarding these classifications. Proficiency in the English language at the level of the European standard C1.

Candidates without an English language certificate at the time of application may be asked to do so as a condition for enrollment. Applicants taking their first degree at an Italian University must have acquired at least 150 credits by the relevant application deadline. Applicants need to satisfy the admissions committee not only that they meet these minimal requirements but also that their knowledge and academic abilities are of a sufficiently high level to undertake the proposed course of study. To this end, the admissions committee will assess applicants’ academic qualifications (both overall and in the relevant disciplines), their academic potential in the relevant fields, and their level of English. Academic potential will be assessed in part through an interview (by skype or in person) held shortly after the relevant application deadline.

Non-EU applicants are advised to apply earlier rather than later, given the time needed to obtain a study visa and the competitive nature of the application process. Non-EU applicants applying to the degree program at the second of the above deadlines (in May) should consider beginning their visa application (at the Italian Embassy) beforehand, or simultaneously. Deadlines for visa applications can vary. For more precise information, we strongly advise applicants to contact the Italian Embassy in their own country as soon as possible. All applicants will be interviewed shortly after the relevant application deadline, either in person (in Pavia), or by skype. In the latter case, interviews must use the video as well as the audio facility. The interview is an integral part of the selection procedure and will include questions designed to assess applicants’ analytical, argumentative, and critical abilities. The interview will not normally presuppose specialist knowledge in particular disciplines. The admissions committee will inform all applicants by email of the outcome of the application procedure. Successful applicants will then be supplied with further information about the enrollment process. Please note that applications for academic year 2016-2017 are now open.

Best Part time Masters in International Cooperation 2017. INTERCULTURAL UNDERSTANDING FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF GLOBALISATION In our increasingly interdependent world, cultural differences shape the everyday life of individuals as well as large corporations. These cultural and linguistic boundaries demand new skills to manage the deterritorialisation of culture, the transnational mobility of both humans and streams of information, and increased interconnectivity through the internet and social media. The new Intercultural Studies programme offers these skills. The programme prepares students to analyse various different contexts and engage in entrepreneurial activity using their foreign-language skills. Students can choose between five different tracks: Intercultural Studies (English) Intercultural Studies (French) Intercultural Studies (German) Intercultural Studies (Latin America) Intercultural Studies (Spanish and Spanish America) STUDY PROFILE The programme will develop students’ knowledge and skills in languages, intercultural communication and competence, and cultural understanding from the perspective of globalisation. Furthermore, the programme contains elements of project management, including the opportunity for a one-semester internship. Students will study key contemporary themes from a historical perspective within the fields of culture, language and society. The working methods include the study of real-life cases and project-oriented group work.

CAREERS Graduates of the programme are highly valued for their strong intercultural competencies and multilingual projects and processes by both private and public organisations in the international job market. “Do you wonder how the refugee crises and transnational conflicts influence identity constructions nationally as well as at a global level? Do you want to understand how today’s ideological and political arguments draw on past conflicts, and what kind of impact they have? Are you eager to understand how film, visual art and literature help us negotiate our cultural identities and shape our cultural imagination? And do you want to be able to work professionally with intercultural issues in English, French, Spanish or German? If you do, Intercultural Studies is your choice.” HANS LAUGE HANSEN Professor, Department of Communication and Culture/Spanish [-]
