  Course description

The programme is articulated as follows. The first year is organised around a common track, which is based on courses aimed at providing multidisciplinary knowledge and competences regarding globalisation, Europeanisation, public management and transnational history developments. Courses offered in the common track will cover the fields of history of ideas, political philosophy, political science, law, economics, sociology and linguistics. The two specific tracks will maintain a common pedagogic vision, but will be specifically dedicated to European and Global policies. The European track will be devoted to the multidisciplinary analysis of the main policy and governance challenges that the European Union is facing, whereas the Global track will be centred more on the multidisciplinary analysis of policy, governance and communication challenges that global organisations are facing.
