Visit the official programme website for more information


Offered jointly with the Universite? Paul-Vale?ry Montpellier 3 (UPVM) and in collaboration with the universities of Strasbourg, Sousse and Mekne?s, this master’s degree programme taught in both English and French gives you an in-depth knowledge of the countries along the south shore of the Mediterranean and their interaction with Europe. 

The two years of study take place between Italy, France, and Tunisia or Morocco, providing you with the interdisciplinary skills necessary for the study of intercultural mediation and migration in the Mediterranean as well as a knowledge of tools of qualitative and quantitative analysis, field research and data analysis techniques and European planning approaches. 

The Crossing the Mediterranean - towards Investment and Integration programme at Ca' Foscari University of Venice also emphasises the development of your language skills in Arabic and Moroccan Arabic, and it includes an internship that allows you to acquire work experience in the field or carry out independent research. Upon completing your studies, you receive a double diploma awarded by both Ca’ Foscari and UPVM.

The modules taught at Ca' Foscari take place in buildings located in the historic centre of Venice.

Launching your career

With the skills you obtain in this programme's plurilingual, 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, you will be empowered by your exceptional training and deep understanding of the role and impact of planning in a geopolitical area as rich and complex as that of the Mediterranean.

 As a graduate, you will be ready to launch a career as a communication specialist (press, television, cinema, social networks, editorial consultancy), a transcultural intermediation expert working for cultural associations and organisations, or a socio-political expert working for think-tanks tackling Mediterranean issues.
