The Master&rsquo's Degree (Laurea Magistrale) in European and International Studies (MEIS) at the School of International Studies (SIS) is the fruit of a close collaboration between the Departments of Economics and Management, Sociology and Social Research, Humanities, and the Faculty of Law. The multidisciplinary organization of MEIS enables students to develop a deeper and broader understanding of the transformations taking place in the European and international contexts. MEIS is based on a mixture of teaching methods, which is believed to be the best balance to merge a thorough understanding of theoretical issues with the ability to apply them in real-life situations.

The international environment of the University of Trento fosters a stimulating learning environment. The School regularly organizes conferences, debates, careers talks, and fairs, along with a lively series of guest lectures and seminars held by academics of international standing and professionals working in distinguished international organizations.

About MEIS

The first year of the Master&rsquo's Degree (Laurea Magistrale) in European and International Studies (MEIS) encompasses courses in the academic disciplines of economics, history, law, political science, and sociology. However, the hallmark of the MEIS is its multi- and interdisciplinary approach, which encourages students to venture beyond the confines of individual academic disciplines. The second year, therefore, offers students a choice of advanced courses that allow them to focus on some of the specific issues, institutions, processes, and developments that shape our world.

The teaching approach, which aims to marry theory with real-world application, fosters the interactive participation of students. Particular attention is paid to developing those skills necessary to analyze the economic, legal, political, and social systems and the transformations in systems of European and international governance.

Teaching takes place entirely in English. Taught courses, language workshops, and tutoring activities contribute to developing advanced English language communication skills, necessary for entry into an international work and research environment. Graduates also have a working knowledge of at least one additional foreign language in addition to a basic knowledge of Italian (in the case of international students).

All students receive individual supervision by a faculty member for their final dissertations, which students write and defend to complete the Master's Degree.
