Upon completion this Master's Degree course in Area and Global Studies for International Cooperation from University of Turin, students will have acquired advanced knowledge in the fields of international politics and cooperation, in-depth knowledge of the political, economic and social organization of specific geographic areas, with adequate concern for the juridical, historical, cultural, linguistic and anthropological dimensions, as well as interdisciplinary understanding of global processes.
They will have gained the methodological and theoretical tools required to interpret social, economic, territorial, environmental and cultural transformations, and the relevance of the gender dimension in such processes.
