Students will benefit from a multidisciplinary training at the highest level, providing the key skill-sets to understand and analyse complex dynamics associated with globalization and increased international interdependences.

Core modules will provide for the cutting-edge concepts and skills necessary to address key questions, extending from the dynamics of global geopolitics to the transformation of societies, from developments in international political economy to changing patterns of social inequalities. In the last three decades, globalization processes have been challenging the functioning of western societies across many domains from, inter alia, political participation and representation; welfare states’ structures and labour market regulation; citizenship’s rights and migration; to the risks of novel forms of discrimination and exclusion.

The interdependent nature of these challenges requires the training of professionals who can assess the extent to which globalization processes are affecting the functioning of contemporary politics and society. The GPS programme provides the foundations, substantively and methodologically, for such highly-qualified professionals.

GPS graduates will be prepared for different career paths, as professionals who can analyse the social, political and economic developments with a global scope, as well as the training for structuring medium to long-term strategic plans. 

GPS graduates will acquire knowledge and training for working in the field of applied research in social and political sciences; in national and international political institutions, and non-governmental organizations; in public, private and third sector organizations; in companies and organizations within the information sector, the cultural industry and the publishing market.

They will also be exceptionally well placed to engage in academic research and to participate in the leading PhD programmes in social and political sciences.

Application and admissions: free.

Applicants will be invited to an interview.

  • Applicants with an Italian degree from one of the following: Filosofia (L-05); Lingue e Culture Moderne (L-11); Mediazione Linguistica (L-12); Scienze dei Servizi Giuridici (L-14); Scienze dell'Amministrazione dell'Organizzazione (L-16); Scienze dell'Economia e della Gestione Aziendale (L-18); Scienze della Comunicazione (L-20); Scienze Economiche (L-33); Scienze Politiche e delle Relazioni Internazionali (L-36); Scienze Sociali per la Cooperazione, lo Sviluppo e la Pace (L-37); Scienze del Servizio Sociale (L-39); Sociologia (L-40); Statistica (L-41); Storia (L-42).
  • Applicants who completed their undergraduate studies in foreign universities are eligible for admission if they hold a bachelor’s degree in political science, sociology, economics or other broadly-related subjects (history, philosophy, etc.).

Students meeting the minimum requirements are invited for an interview (in English) with the Admissions Committee, composed of members appointed by the Teaching Board. The interview, which can also be carried out remotely, is aimed at verifying candidates’ skills and as well as their knowledge of the English Language equivalent to the B2 level.

The degree in Global Politics and Society offers the opportunity to study at several European universities, where students will be able to attend lectures and obtain credits for their degree.

Furthermore, GPS is part of a prestigious inter-university network: the network of European Masters in Labour Studies - EMLS. The other partners of the network are:

  • Université catholique de Louvain,
  • Universität Bremen, Universität Trier,

Students may attend a semester in one of the EMLS partner universities. Accordingly, any examination passed at any university in the network is fully and automatically recognized. 

GPS students may also obtain a double degree, jointly recognized by the University of Milan and the University of Bremen, following a specific path, focused on welfare and employment matters, and attending the first year at University of Bremen.
