Government, Administration and Politics

LM62 SCIENCES OF POLITICS

The master’s degree in Government, Administration and Politics, entirely offered in Italian, allows students to draw from the exceptional foundation of Luiss Political Science programs combined with valuable input as to the state of public affairs and real world applications from companies and institutions that surround public policy and administration. Students will venture into the inner workings of public policy decisions and implementation, and be ready to join the conversation in tackling this new and ever-changing frontier in governance.

Public policy worldwide is currently undergoing a vast transformation. Policies are based more on preliminary technical analyses and evaluation of potential impact. Both communications and media savvy work in tandem to create public awareness while lobbying is evolving to tackle issues through technology tools and other instruments. As a result, governments worldwide need new competencies to see their policies implemented with success.
