The MLitt in Middle East, Caucasus and Central Asian Security Studies (MECCASS) provides students with in-depth familiarity with the political and security dynamics of the geographic area of the Middle East, Caucasus and Central Asia.

The MLitt in Middle East, Caucasus and Central Asian Security Studies is a one-year multidisciplinary degree run by the School of International Relations which offers an advanced grounding in the security of three fascinating and turbulent regions: the Middle East, Caucasus and Central Asia. It explores the security, politics, economics, history and culture of these strategically significant areas.

Highlights The course is designed as a prelude to professional work in diplomacy, government, NGOs, or international business or as a preparation for PhD study. In most years, the MECCASS teaching staff conduct a study trip for students to either Central Asia or the Middle East, offering unique insights (these trips depend on staff availability and conditions on the ground, and cannot, therefore be guaranteed to be available every year; they are funded by participating students). The course offers an opportunity for language study in Arabic, Persian or Russian. Teaching is deeply informed with real-world experience as the programme regularly brings in practitioners and outside experts. Teaching format ... [-]

Global Cultures Curriculum is intended to be a radically new approach to the humanities. Students are invited to critically analyse the “shock of the global” that is shaping our lives and societies and to abandon the traditional Eurocentric and state-centred approaches and methodologies. Hybridisation among methods and research fields, experimentation of new forms of interaction between academics and students, and a strong emphasis on cross-cultural and transnational connections are all essential elements for a new critical perspective in the study of past and present academic discourse.

5 reasons to enrol on the degree programme A community of students: students at GLOC feel they are part of an international community of scholars and friends International environment: students at GLOC have a chance to meet scholars, professors and friends coming from everywhere Renown faculty: students at GLOC can attend courses taught by Italian and invited international scholars well known in the field A non traditional teaching: students at GLOC can experiment new forms of interaction with their professors in and out of class Dedicated spaces: students at GLOC have their own classrooms, a meeting room for group works, and a common room to chat and relax Admission requirements ...
