This Master's Degree Programme intends to prepare graduates specialized in issues related to inequalities, rights of citizenship, multiculturalism and social policies. The educational programme includes specialized courses, among which the student can choose different curricula related to the fields of social welfare and social policies ( policies analysis and evaluation of welfare and public health services,  globalization processes, social welfare transformations) or of the area of multiculturalism (migrations, multiculturalism, racial discrimination) . The 250 hour internship (both in Italy and abroad), coordinated by social assistant supervisors, is a fundamental phase of the training

The educational activities include classroom teaching, workshops and internships, in order to acquire wide-ranging skills that can be readily transferable into the world of work.

During the whole university career, the various skills and knowledge acquired by students will be assessed through written and oral examinations.
The degree exam consists in writing a thesis, which must possess the characters of originality, exhaustive documentation and scientific investigation and which will be discussed with a committee of university professors and experts.
