NEWS! A webinar showcasing this programme and involving a professor and a current student took place as part of Ca’ Foscari’s 2023 INTERNATIONAL OPEN DAYS.




This Comparative International Relations programme is the only one in Italy focused on International Relations that provides you with a rich understanding of international law and economics while deepening your knowledge of languages and foreign cultures.

It immerses you in linguistic and cultural studies regarding Europe, Asia and the Atlantic world, something Ca’ Foscari has done since its founding in 1868, and empowers you to explore, understand and analyse international relations through juridical, economic, historical and political lenses. By the end of the programme, you will be able to fluently communicate in both English and a second language as well as elaborate coherent strategies aimed at solving problems on an international scale.

This programme offers 2 curricula, or study paths, entirely taught in English from which to choose. Explore this programme’s study plans (Study > Study plan > Enrolled in the 2023/2024 academic year)
