This program has a limited number of available places and admission is competitive. All applicants must submit transcripts of their completed last two-years of high school, or their completed second-to-last year of high school and most up-to-date record for their current, and last year of high school.
Although applications will be evaluated in the order of submission, high school performance will be one of the main factors in the admission board’s decision.
IRGA’s interdisciplinary curriculum includes a wide range of disciplines: from History to Politics, from Sociology to Psychology, from Law to International Relations, from Economics to Quantitative Methods which require students to be familiar with world history, institutions, cultures and societies, as well as to possess some basic logical and quantitative abilities.
International candidates may wish to submit SAT (evidence-based reading, writing and Math) or ACT (writing, reading and math) test scores, which will be also considered by the admission board and may strengthen their application

Learning objectives

IRGA allows students to develop an interdisciplinary knowledge of political, economic, historic, sociological and legal aspects of complex international issues. Studying how these disciplines approach, define and analyze international relations gives undergraduate students a sound basis for graduate studies. It also provides students with essential skills to conduct interdisciplinary research and collaboration, and the tools to understanding real-world situations. The program’s interdisciplinary approach goes beyond the language of economics and law, and addresses the historical, social and political concerns that are really at stake, and vice versa.

The School of Political and Social Sciences

The School of Political and Social Sciences holds a long tradition as it was one of the first schools to be established at Università Cattolica in 1921, based on the principles of common good, human dignity solidarity and subsidiarity. Its international scope is highlighted by the renowned personalities who have been awarded a Laurea Honoris Causa. These inspiring names include Jacques Delors (President of the EU Commission), Javier Pérez de Cuéllar (Secretary General of the UN), Corazon C. Aquino (President of the Philippines) Shimon Peres (President of Israel), Michel Camdessus (Managing Director of the IMF), Helmut Kohl (Chancellor of Germany), Romano Prodi (Italian Prime Minister and President of the EU Commission), José María Aznar (Prime Minister of Spain), Irina Bokova (Director-General of UNESCO).
