Master's degrees

Second cycle of university studies

The Master's degree cycle allows students to broaden their knowledge, either to specialise in a particular field or acquire an interdisciplinary training. It concludes with a sizeable personal project consisting of end-of-study research work or a dissertation. In the Bologna system, this second cycle lasts for 3 to 4 semesters (90-120 ECTS credits), depending on the chosen programme, and leads to the award of a Master's degree.

The Faculty of Social and Political Sciences currently offers four Master's degree programmes. Each of them offers a number of specific orientations. Many other Master's degrees are open to our students. The full list can be found here.
