Offered in Bologna, the M.A.I.A. is a two-year research-oriented master's degree. It does not require a concentration and allows students to submit a thesis in lieu of two of the 16 non-language courses normally required for the M.A. Applicants put forward a research proposal which, if accepted, becomes the subject of an M.A.I.A. thesis in the second year.
Courses at SAIS Bologna emphasize economics, political science, history and foreign language proficiency, providing a cross-disciplinary approach. Core faculty and adjunct professors from major European institutions combine personal advising with a broad choice of curriculum. M.A.I.A. students select a course of study that complements their research focus.
