IPLE is an interdisciplinary bachelor’s degree programme in International Politics, Law and Economics. IPLE is entirely taught in English, and students will opt for either the “International Politics and Economics” curriculum or for the “International Politics and Law” one. In the former case, they will acquire a wide array of skills and tools for the comparative analysis of politics and economic policies; in the latter, they will delve into international relations issues, including international and European law, and the political history of specific regions of the world. This bachelor’s programme further offers the possibility to attend a wide range of practical workshops and/or undertake short or long internship experiences.
The following are the common courses of the three-year IPLE programme:
Logic and critical thinking
History of political theories
Comparative social systems
Language assessment: French/German/Spanish/Italian
Writing and communication skills
The following are the courses belonging to each of the two curricula, mostly taught in the 2nd and 3rd year of the programme:
