The Department of Law, Economics, Politics and Modern Languages was set up in October 2017, following the union between the Departments of Law and Economic and Political Sciences and Modern Languages.
The Department has therefore inherited strong experiences, knowledge and traditions, which converge in a teaching offer that, despite the variety of the proposed disciplines, makes consistency in the analysis of the increasingly complex contemporary reality its hallmark.
The teaching offer includes degree courses (three-year, master’s degrees or single-cycle master’s degrees), master’s degrees, PhD programs, advanced training courses, training courses and refresher courses as well as a Specialization School for Legal Professions.
The educational offer enhances the international vocation by providing innovative academic courses that go beyond the national and European borders such as the International Law Program, which includes a significant proportion of teaching offered in English and provides access to periods of study and research abroad and to a double degree program (Law Degree and LLM in Transnational Legal Practice) in a U.S. University; the Master's degree in Management and Finance, which boasts a curriculum entirely taught in English (in addition to a curriculum held in Italian) as well as the teaching of a Jean Monnet Module in European approach to Better Regulation; the Master's degree course in Planning and Management of Social Policies and Services, which offers a double degree with a Spanish university; the Master's degree course in International Relations, an academic course which provides a double degree with a French university and has its roots in the cosmopolitan and globalized vision of the contemporary world.
The Department academic offer also encompasses the following degree courses: three-year degree course in economics (Corporate Economics and Management); single-cycle master's degree in Law; three-year linguistic degree (Linguistic and Cultural Mediation); three-year and master degree in the social field (Social work and non-profit organization sciences and Planning and Management of Social Policies and Services) and the three-year degree in politics (Political International and Administrative Science).
Students are offered the opportunity to develop international experiences thanks to scholarship programs such as Erasmus, Crui-Maeci, Leonardo and others.
The Department hosts scientific events, cultural initiatives, study meetings, seminars and exchanges between teachers and students, such as CERBE, the LUMSA Social Work Lab, a European research project Horizon 2020, the Observatory of Germany, Italy and Europe(OGIE), the "Res Publica. Magazine of international historical and political studies". The involvement of professionals and representatives of the business world, as well as the presence of young researchers and tutors, contribute to foster a climate of lively cooperation.
Teachers are actively engaged in scientific research at national and international level (Prin – Research Projects of National Interest, Firb – The “Future in Research” Program, Erc - European Research Council, Cordis - Community Research and Development Information Service, etc.) and, in some cases, they work in the professional field or hold important institutional positions related to their academic role. What unites them, together with the non-teaching staff of the Department, is the deep engagement in a project aimed at welcoming and promoting the growth of young students, with the objective of forging women and men to become free, competent, accountable and to boast a vision of values that goes beyond the circumstances of the current time, empowered to face the challenges of today and tomorrow.
