The bachelor's and master's degree courses combine the study of contemporary political and international issues, through a solid multidisciplinary social science curriculum (political science, history, public law, economics), with knowledge of a political and cultural area and proficiency in one or more Eastern languages.

The professional and specialized courses focus on specific practices and/or objects (humanitarian negotiations, foreign policies) approached from a comparative and contextualized perspective.
