Torino - Salonicco | European Studies Double Degree Master Program (ESIS)
Duration: 2 years (one year of mobility at the partner university)
Places available: up to 20 reserved for students from Turin + up to 20 reserved for students from Thessaloniki
Scientific coordinator: Giovanni Finizio
Didactic coordinator: Anna Caffarena
Under the agreement between the Department of Cultures, Politics and Society of the University of Turin (hereinafter referred to as 'CPS'), and the University of Thessaloniki - School of Political Sciences (hereinafter referred to as 'AUTh'), students enrolled in the Master’s Degree Course in International Studies (Corso di Laurea magistrale in Scienze Internazionali LM-52) will be able to carry out their first year of studies at the University of Thessaloniki following an integrated study plan.
At the end of the program, two degrees will be awarded:
- Master’s Degree in International Studies (Laurea magistrale in Scienze Internazionali) (UniTo)
- Master's Degree in International Studies: Specialisation in European Studies (AUTh)
Participation in the international program envisages an integrated study plan, which, unlike other forms of mobility, has been previously approved by both partner universities to enable all participants to follow the same higher education pathway. The integrated study plan also enables students to complete the university course within the agreed timeframe through agreed recognition of credits for all activities carried out at the partner institution.
At the end of this structured mobility program, participants write their master’s thesis in English under the supervision of a member of the academic staff of one of the two partner universities. Students discuss their dissertation in English or in Italian, once only, at the University of Turin or the University of Thessaloniki.
Interested candidates must apply via the Call that which will be published in mid-June and will expire on 4 September 2023.
*Deadline extended until 7 September!*
Up to 20 students from UniTo and an equal number from AUTh are admitted to the program.
