International Master MIREES, University of Bologna, Deadline May 16th‏


International Master MIREES, University of Bologna, Deadline May 16th‏

The international *Master of Arts in** **Interdisciplinary Research and
Studies on Eastern Europe* *(MIREES)* is a *Second cycle Joint Degree* (120
ECTS), awarded by the University of Bologna (Forlì Campus) in cooperation
with the *Vytautas Magnus University <http://www.vdu.lt/>* at Kaunas,
the *Corvinus
University <http://www.uni-corvinus.hu/index.php?id=474>* of Budapest, and
the *Saint-Petersburg State University <http://www.spbu.ru/>*.
 
MIREES is an innovative graduate programme, *taught entirely* in *English* ,
unique in Italy and Europe, devoted to students that have a BA background in
Economics, Politics, International Relations, History, Agricultural or
Cultural studies at large, and would now like to acquire a specialized,
in-depth knowledge of the Post-socialist Countries in transition, the new EU
member States after the Enlargements of 2004 and 2007, as well as the New
East-European Neighbour Countries.
 
MIREES combines an *academic approach* with *professional training*, forging
potential insightful consultants, analysts, and managers as Area Experts for
international agencies, public administrations, private and public
companies, and NGOs, while also offering a solid basis for further academic
studies at the PhD level.
 
The programme produces graduates who are able to analyse, interpret, assess
and manage problems concerning the international dimension particularly of
political, economic and social phenomena in Eastern Europe.
For this purpose, the programme includes learning activities in linguistics,
economics, politological, historical and cultural studies, which are
mutually integrated to provide an in-depth preparation on the operations of
political, social and economic systems in the countries of Eastern Europe
and their role in the international context.
The programme includes an obligatory period of *international mobility* (6
months), not only to enhance the learning value of the whole 2nd cycle
degree programme through the attendance of (linguistic and subject-related)
course units with their relative tests, but also for field research which
the students will implement in preparation of their dissertations.
