The International Relations and European Studies programme from University of Florence consists of a communal first year intended to provide a background in the legal, economic, historical and political science fields necessary in the international or European context. 


Key Features

In the International Relations (LM-52) track, students explore various issues, including international law related to the protection of human rights, the relationship between religion and international relations, economic and taxation issues, education and health, and the role of supranational institutions. Finally, students are offered a wide array of area-specific courses to specialize in, if they so choose. In particular, the International Relations track prepares students interested in pursuing a diplomatic career or in becoming officers or directors in international organizations, NGOs, international cooperation agencies, consulting agencies, journalism, research centers, and at high levels of public administration operating in an international context. 

The European Studies (LM-90) track aims to train professionals with in-depth knowledge of the process of European integration and its current organization, with a particular focus on the structure and dynamics of EU functions, integration, the content of EU policy, and the EU's impact in national and international politics. Further opportunities for specialization present themselves during mandatory internships, as well as while working on the final dissertation and other research work.

Professionals that have graduated from the International Relations and European Studies programme from University of Florence are increasingly in demand by governments, businesses, and trade associations, not only at the supra-national level, but also at national, regional and local levels, both for interacting with European institutions and for drafting proposals for EU funding.
