Degrees Offered

Master of Arts in Transnational Governance

Our Program

Our Master in Transnational Governance is a unique programme with a mission to train future policy leaders to effectively design policies for pressing transnational issues.

The master’s curriculum covers the economic, legal and political aspects of transnational governance, as well as developing key professional skills, thanks to training sessions and internships.

You will specialise in a policy area of your choice and fine-tuning your skills for the career you want. 

Located in the historical city centre of Florence, our headquarters are part of a world-wide network of institutional and academic partnerships. Our small and international community means students are supported by world-leading professors and policy makers.

What Our Students Say

    I really like the idea that the STG brings together academia and practice (...). At first, I was hit by the internship opportunities, the executive trainings and all of the practice-oriented activities promoted by the STG, as I was not looking for a purely academic study career.

    What I found quite interesting here is the personal relationship we have with our professors and mentors (…) I found it very empowering and great for learning to be so close with the faculty and have an intimate and interdisciplinary class. Watch the full interview

    Coming to the STG just seemed like the natural choice much as I didn't know that I would have the opportunity to work with two of the experts I kept citing over and over again in my work on migration politics. [..] it's really become a springboard to jump off into other opportunities which has been quite helpful so far. Watch it!
