The Department of Political Sciences offers a range of first and second level degree programs (Corsi di laurea triennale and corsi di laurea magistrale, respectively).

The first level degree, (called “Laurea triennale”, Bachelor's degree), is obtained after 3 years of study. The second level degree, (called “Laurea Magistrale”, Master’s degree), is obtained after two additional years of study, during which students specialize in a particular branch of the chosen subject.

Educational activities, which include individual study, lectures, seminars, labs and technical training, are measured in Crediti Formativi Universitari (CFUs) which can be transferred across the European Union and other collaborating European countries under the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). One CFU represents an individual workload of approximately 25 hours. Each year of study involves the acquisition of about 60 CFUs.

For the academic year 2016/17 the Department of Political Sciences offers the following degree programs:

First level degrees (180 CFUs)
