Scienze Politiche

L-36 POLITICAL SCIENCES AND INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS

The Department of Political Science offers a major in Italian in Scienze Politiche and one in English in Politics, Philosophy and Economics.

The bachelor's degree program in Political Science is aimed at giving students a mastery of methods and content, which will provide them with scientific knowledge of contemporary politics. For this purpose, the program provides an interdisciplinary theoretical framework, which includes economics, politics, philosophy, law, sociology, history and communications. This is designed to encourage the ability – essential in order to understand contemporary politics – to grasp the relationships between the economic system, the political system and institutional structures. Teaching is mainly done through lectures, as at least for the first phase of university, this methodology remains the most effective one.

Lectures are integrated with more innovative methods of teaching – thanks to workshops, written tests, and case studies – in order to encourage the natural passage from bachelor’s degree studies to more specialized ones. The underlying idea, which has already been successful in several countries, is to offer the foundation needed to master political and institutional phenomena, debates on fundamental questions of our time, and the economic aspect of contemporary reality.

Considerable focus is given to languages. At the end of their studies, graduates in Political Science will have perfected their knowledge and mastery – both written and oral – of English and another foreign language (including Arabic, Chinese, French, Spanish, German and Russian). Language teaching is provided by native English teachers and done throughout the program, with evaluations by specialized institutions. This is followed by a language and academic/specialized skills module taught by LUISS professors, which is completed with an exam and assignment for a grade and credits.

The Politics, Philosophy and Economics major is open only to students with advanced proficiency in English, who continue to work on Academic English for Social Studies as well as one or two other foreign languages.
