Economics and Political Science (EPS)
What is rare in Italy, however, is common in the academic tradition of most EU and non-EU countries. In the English-speaking world, in particular, the undergraduate and graduate programmes in Philosophy, Politics and Economics have represented for more than a century the privileged access to prestigious professional careers in both the economic and the political field, in public and private sectors alike. Similar experiences are also familiar in the French- and German-speaking university systems.
These deeply rooted traditions are another factor behind the intention of organising the EPS degree as a fully internationalised programme, promoting mobility and joint degree agreements with similar courses offered by foreign universities. The language of instruction is English.
Our partners are selected among the most prestigious academic institutions in France (SciencesPo), Germany (University of Mannheim), Norway (University of Oslo), and other European countries. A bilateral agreement with the Catholic University of Louvain and the Université de Namur (Belgium) allows a limited number of students to obtain a double degree in Sciences Economique and Economics and Political Science issued by the participating institutions. Moreover, an exchange with the HSBC Business School, Peking University Shenzhen (China), has been running since 2014. Finally, a new Exchange program with Plekhanov Russian University of Economics (Moscow, Russian Federation) has been activated in the a.y. 2016-17. The modules offered by our partners include core subjects and disciplines of Economics and Political Science such as Industrial Organization, Welfare Economics, European Law, Comparative and International Politics. The choice of modules is made by students before their departure in collaboration with the programme coordinator; the credits are recognized officially and included in the curriculum at the end of the exchange period.
The degree in Economics and Political Science also offers the opportunity to participate in internship programmes at institutions such as the ITUC - International Trade Union Confederation, OSE - Observatoire Social Européen, ETUI - European Trade Union Institute, EAPN - European Anti-Poverty Networks of Brussels and the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong and Macao. Internships may also award student credits to be included in their curriculum.
