The Department of Political Science and International Relations of the University of the Peloponnese (Greece), in partnership with
offers a Postgraduate Program in Mediterranean Studies and will receive up to 26 students for the academic year 2019-2020.
Description of Program
The MA in Mediterranean Studies is designed to be a flexible and dynamic umbrella program that covers a wide variety of issues and problems across different disciplines (i.e., Political Science, International Relations, Cultural Studies, and Economics). It is premised on a multidimensional approach to an array of pressing, though interdependent, questions such as conflict, security and nationalism; democratization, civil society and the Arab Spring; Cultures and multiculturalism; women’s issues and activism; economic crisis and development; and energy security and environmental challenges. The structure of the program facilitates the diverse contributions of faculty of the different participating institutions, enabling and sustaining the program’s wide-ranging focus.
Upon completion of studies, graduates of the Postgraduate Programme:
Duration of studies: Twelve months, full time.
Title Awarded: Master of Arts (M.A.) in Mediterranean Studies.
The degree is awarded from the University of the Peloponnese upon successful completion of the program’s requirements. All partnering institutions are explicitly mentioned in the Diploma Supplement.
Language of instruction: English.
Location: Students attend courses in the coastal city of Corinth, in Greece. The Department is conveniently located an hour away from Athens, easily accessible by train and bus.

The Department provides two merit-based full tuition fee waivers for economically disadvantaged students coming from non-EU Mediterranean countries with an outstanding profile.
Tuition fees are waived for EU students whose personal and family income does not exceed 100% and 70% of national median equivalent disposal income respectively, according to the latest data published by the Hellenic Statistical Authority (ElStat). The waiver is provided for one postgraduate program only. The number of students benefiting from the waiver cannot exceed 30% of all students admitted to the postgraduate program. If the number of those eligible exceeds that proportion, those admitted to the program are selected starting from those with the lowest income (art.35, para 2, Law 4485/2017).
Greek students may also seek to receive a grant for their postgraduate studies from the ‘LAEK 0.24’ program of OAED (for more information see: http://laek.oaed.gr/).
Students should also consider the accommodation and living expenses while staying in Corinth.
Deadline for Application: 28 June 2019. Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply early and avoid last-minute increased competition.

Previous professional experience and any other relevant skills (e.g., knowledge of other languages spoken in the Mediterranean) will be considered too.
