In the two years of study, which takes place between Italy, France, Tunisia or Morocco, you will gain interdisciplinary skills related to studies on migration in the Mediterranean and intercultural mediation, historical and social skills, qualitative and quantitative analysis tools, field research techniques, analysis of collected data and European planning skills. An emphasis is placed on developing your linguistic skills, in particular Hebrew, Arabic and Moroccan.
The course includes an internship, allowing you to acquire work experience in the field, or to launch independent research.
The Crossing the Mediterranean - towards Investment and Integration programme at Ca' Foscari University of Venice is taught in English and French. Upon completing your studies, a double diploma is awarded from both Ca’ Foscari and UPVM. With the skills you obtain in this plurilingual and multicultural context, you can establish yourself in diverse professional fields, from sustainable planning to Euro- Mediterranean cooperation. You can also work in the organisation and promotion of cultural events, social and educational activities, or the development of sustainable tourism. In each of these fields, MIM graduates can rely on excellent training and a deep understanding of the role and impact of planning in a geopolitical area that is as rich and delicate as the Mediterranean.
The study path comprises three modules organized at the three partner universities involved (UAB, Ca’ Foscari, UPVM), a fourth module organized either at a university in Maghreb (Sousse/Meknès) or at the University of Strasbourg and a three-month internship.
Graduates are trained to be communication specialists (press, television, cinema, social networks, editorial consultancy), transcultural intermediation experts working for cultural associations and organisations, socio-political experts working for think-tanks tackling Mediterranean issues. Career opportunities can therefore be found in the following contexts:
