2 YEAR PROGRAM
Major of the Master’s Degree in Policies and Governance in Europe

The Master’s degree in Policies and Governance in Europe (PAGE) responds to a changing world in which policy decisions are taken at different linked levels. It prepares students to use public policy analysis in the outside world by drawing on different disciplines. The track focuses on how and why policy makers govern and regulate economic markets at the national, EU and international levels.

The Master’s degree in Policies and Governance in Europe covers major policies made at EU, international, national, regional and local levels. It is multidisciplinary and includes the study of political science, law and economics, sociology and management. It offers a combination of analytical skills, knowledge of key domains and specific competencies. It is designed for public and private sector organisations (e.g. governments and regulatory agencies, EU and international institutions, lobbying and public affairs units of large firms and associations). The Program provides opportunities for internships, which will also earn degree credits. Moreover, the course gives access to Luiss links with potential employers and follows students in applying for jobs.
