The majority of graduates in International Politics and Government are likely to go on to graduate studies. They can nevertheless access the labor market directly.
Graduates may work in the analysis, communication, implementation and assessment of public policies. Their skills include examining and interpreting elements for the external environment and their changes, considering the historical, legal, economic, sociological and political landscape, including with an international perspective; a mastery of qualitative and quantitative analysis tools suitable to defining public intervention policies and the assessment of their impact; understanding the lines of action for institutional and public communication, applying the most appropriate tools and techniques; and supporting political and administrative leadership (e.g. documentary research, writing reports and minutes, organizing meetings).
Career opportunities include work at international, national and local public institutions (e.g. municipalities, European Commission, United Nations), companies in highly regulated sectors (e.g. energy, environmental and mass media sectors) and political analysis institutions and research centers.
