Dear Students,

The Department of Political Science of the University of Perugia has been recognized as Department of Excellence by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) for the years 2018-2022. Since the academic year 2019/20 the Department has offered a newly conceived range of first and second level degree programs. This is the result of a departmental project involving the collaboration of the teaching staff with the students and civil society, including local and international institutions, social cooperatives, non-profit organizations, etc.

The new educational offer is multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary in character. The broad perspective offered by disciplinary areas such as history, political science, sociology, law, economics and statistics, languages and translation, each with its approaches and methods, allows for versatility and flexibility in an increasingly complex and diverse society.

The educational curriculum of the degree programs fits existing job profiles but also outlines innovative professional figures. The Department has a consolidated history of teaching and research as well as an international dimension, which has been recently expanded through the creation of the MsC in Migration, Globalisation and World Governance, which is taught in English.

The Dean of the Department of Political Science

Prof. Giorgio E. Montanari
