Study tour to Washington D.C. and New York

The 11th Edition of the Master degree course in “Communication for International Relations” includes a Study Tour to Washington DC and New York.

The Study Tour to U.S. is the ideal place to get in touch with current international affairs: nowadays Washington and New York are the main centers for politics and international affairs as location of International Organizations (as Monetary Fund, The World Bank, UN Palace), lobbying firms and International Universities.

The Master will provide flights and accommodation.
