Main focus

; Graduates will possess a solid understanding of the legal and political foundations of the international relations of European integration through the study and critical evaluation of institutional mechanisms (e.g. the diplomatic and jurisdictional settlement of controversies, international responsibility, etc.) and of the main international actors and entities, particularly, the State, international organisations, and civil society. Graduates will be capable of performing both a theoretical and practical analysis of international cooperation focused on security and defence, international and European economic relations, the international projection of human rights and the environment, and international and European criminal law. Finally, graduates will know how to consult international sources and use them to conduct high-quality scientific research.


Students that have completed the second cycle have the following competencies: – Have demonstrated knowledge and understanding that is founded upon a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and/or applying ideas, often within a research context. – Can apply their acquired knowledge and understanding, and problem solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study. – Have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgments with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. – Can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously. – Have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.
