Boot Camp and Welcome Orientation Week
The Boot Camp and Welcome Orientation Week kick off the academic year prior to the beginning of first-year classes at the end of September. This includes a guided tour of Florence, orientation of the new campus facilities as well as the EUI libraries and facilities in Fiesole. Housing assistance and social events are also part of the welcome week activities. Students take part in introductory workshops on research methods and Transnational Governance, as well as Italian classes.
First year: Foundation Coursework
During the first year, students will acquire strong and interdisciplinary foundations in Transnational Law, Politics and Institutions, Economics, and a historical perspective on Transnational Governance. They will understand the emergence, actors and practices of Transnational Governance; the drivers of the contemporary shift in global interdependence and its implications for democratic systems.
In between the first year foundation courses and the second year consolidation elective specialisations, students will explore internship opportunities with myriad partner organisations, and are encouraged to bring forward opportunities of specific interests to them.
Second-year: specialisations, electives and Master project
During the second year, students will have the opportunity to specialise in one of the areas related to transnational governance offered by the programme. Additionally, they will also have the opportunity to participate in a broad range of events, talks, workshops and lectures to advance their expertise and professional development
Furthermore, to conclude their studies, each student will choose whether to write an academic-focused Master thesis or to work on the development of a practical-oriented Capstone Report.
