The international Master of Arts MIREES is a Second cycle Joint Degree (120 ECTS), awarded by the University of Bologna, Department of Political and Social Sciences in cooperation with the following partner universities: Vytautas Magnus University at Kaunas and the University of Zagreb.

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, Languages or Cultural studies at large, and would now like to acquire a specialized, in-depth knowledge of Eastern Europe and the broad Eurasian space, from Europe to China. That variegated, geopolitically crucial area, can only be understood through an interdisciplinary approach which combines political, economic, cultural and historical perspectives. Moreover, students are asked to gain direct experiences on the ground, in the first place through a 5-months compulsory mobility in one of the partner universities from the area, secondly through guest lectures with professors, activists and politicians from Eastern Europe, Russia or Central Asia, and finally – if they wish - through fieldwork or further exchange programmes in preparation of their thesis.

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.
