Department of Political Science and International Affairs
Welcome to JCU's Department of Political Science and International Affairs. Our community
of students and professors from across the globe provides an unparalleled international
academic experience. It is heightened by our prime location in the heart of the Italian
capital Rome, the birthplace of the European Union and cosmopolitanism, and a global
city that is the host of a vast range of international organizations and institutions,
UN agencies, as well as embassies to both Italy and the Holy See.
The Department offers an ideal environment to study political science and international affairs in an increasingly globalized world. We are committed to providing an outstanding curriculum as well as multiple opportunities for students to connect with experts and learn about global politics and international affairs outside the classroom. We also believe that excellence in scholarship and excellence in teaching complement and mutually reinforce each other. Our faculty members, renowned the world over in their area of expertise, hold PhDs and doctorates from the leading universities and programs in the United States and Europe. They bring both cutting edge academic research and practical experience to the classroom, offering students a special entry point to world affairs, global politics and policies, and the institutions of global governance.
