The Department of Political Science offers the possibility of obtaining a complex and interdisciplinary education that provides a solid basic culture and at the same time opens up multiple perspectives in the world of work. Graduates can achieve complex skills and international projection in different professional sectors, thanks to the articulation in disciplinary areas such as politics, social, historical, economic, and legal. The basic preparation proposed by the first level, a three-year degree then opens up the opportunity to continue to the second level of studies: the two-year Master's Degree.

The main objective of the Department's study courses is to give graduates a solid and broad preparation regarding political processes and international relations in their different contexts and dimensions. In the increasingly connected and complex world in which we live and operate, structured training that is not only cultural and multidisciplinary but also practical and targeted, allows you to prepare yourself originally and creatively to face the challenges of the contemporary world. The present and the political, social, and economic interrelations are the terrain of analysis on which most of the teachings are oriented. Historical and legal knowledge, essential tools for interpreting politics and society, contributes to consolidating these foundations.
