The University of Bologna is home to a prominent Department of Political Science and International Relations. With students coming from many countries around the world and its prestigious faculty, it is one of the best departments of its kind in Italy. Within SPBO (Scienze Politiche Bologna), E.C.Co. students will have the opportunity to take a wide range of courses in the fields of Political Science, International Relations, Gender Studies, Law, and History. For students particularly interested in International Relations and in countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America, we recommend the following courses, all taught in Italian:
- HISTORY AND INSTITUTIONS OF THE MEDITERRANEAN COUNTRIES
- HISTORY AND INSTITUTIONS OF SUB-SAHARIAN AFRICA
- HISTORY AND INSTITUTIONS OF LATIN AMERICA
- POLITICS AND INSTITUTIONS IN KOREA AND EAST ASIA
- KOREAN STUDIES LABORATORY
For students with relevant backgrounds in International Studies and Italian, it will be possible to take courses from the Laurea Magistrale program (advanced program for students specializing in a field) such as:
And many more!
Moreover, the E.C.Co. program has a close relationship with the Centro Amilcar Cabral, one of the many great public libraries in Bologna that houses one of the largest collections of books and periodicals on the history, politics, economics, religions and cultures of the Asian, African and Latin American countries. E.C.Co. students will have the opportunity to work as interns at the Centro Amilcar Cabral and do specific research for their courses there.
