Third language (not required)

The credits required as “Other activities” can be earned by attending and passing a non-required third language course. The means of attending the course varies for bachelor’s and master’s degree programs.

The didactic system provides for the compulsory study of English and a second language during the three years of the Bachelor's Degrees Courses (Scienze Politiche, and Politics: Philosophy and Economics) and two years of the Master Degree Program in International Relations.

The study of the English language includes 6 semesters of the course, starting from the first semester of the first year.

The study of the second language includes 5 semesters of the course, starting from the second semester of the first year.

The study of the third language (Arabic / Chinese / French / Spanish / Portuguese / Russian / German) is optional, as an alternative to internships / traineeships / workshops. Any choice of the third language must be made at the time of compiling the study plan, and the courses take place starting from the second semester of the second year (three semesters). Attendance to third language courses, if chosen, is compulsory. Lessons will take place on Saturday morning.

The students of the Mater's Degree Program in Policies and Governance in Europe may insert into their study plans a second optional language (4 credits).
