The study track in Mobility Studies, which belongs to the Master's degree programme in Historical Sciences, is driven by the belief that the humanities can play a crucial role in understanding and addressing mobility in modern society. Students will be immersed in the process through which people, texts, images, artefacts, commodities and ideas are moved, translated, transformed, adapted and negotiated by different social actors – sometime in distant spatial contexts – in the past and in the present. Global and local scenarios call for new experts who are trained in historical and cultural studies but ready for political and social action today. An interdisciplinary education at an international level and enriched by inter-sectoral experiences is fundamental to facing the current difficulties that young humanists face when approaching the new job market in both the private and public sectors.

Entry requirements:

If the candidate is an English mother tongue speaker or has attended their upper secondary school or a degree course taught in English, no language certification is necessary.
