Obiettivi formativi specifici del corso e descrizione del percorso formativo

The international Master of ArtsMIREES is a Second cycle JointDegree (120 ECTS), jointly awarded by the School ofPolitical Sciences of the University of Bologna - Forlì Campus, VytautasMagnus University at Kaunas; Corvinus University of Budapest; Saint-PetersburgState University. MIREES is an innovative graduate program, taught entirely in English , unique in Italy and Europe, devoted to students thathave a BA background in Economics, Politics, International Relations, History,Agricultural or Cultural studies at large.

MIREES main characteristics are based on (1) an international Faculty(provided by partnership); (2) an international students' environment (providedby an internationally wide students' enrollment); (3) a compulsory students'mobility within the partnership; (4) a strong research component; (5) languageskills; (6) interdisciplinarity; (7) a wide and intensive methodology aimed toencourage active participation and to provide organizational, analytical, multifunctional,cross-cultural mindset skills and empathy towards the geopolitical Area ofspecialization.

Indeed, the main educational goals of MIREES Program are inspired by acomprehensive rationale, marked by the following:

Providing aspecialized, in-depth regional knowledge of the Post-socialist Countries intransition, the new EU member States after the Enlargements of 2004 and 2007,as well as the New East-European Neighbor Countries;

Encouraging an interdisciplinary approach, able to encompass economic, social, politicaland cultural studies and understand their interaction and interdependency;

Invigorating analytical skills with language expertise and transnational mobility,in order to get access to primary sources, strengthen the empathic approach tothe area of studies and diversities on the basis of the 1996 UNESCO report “Learning the Treasure Within” and itsfour pillars of education applied to MIREES peculiarities (i.e. Learning to know: the Area studies; Learning to do: analytical, research,organizational and other skills as reported in the above boxes; Learning to Live Together: thanks tomobility, international environment and cross-cultural communication; Learning to Be: building a strong senseof social responsibility to public and common goals in terms of trust,knowledge and cooperation).

Equipping thestudents with multifunctional abilities through an educational 2-years program,whose disciplinary learning goals are expended by a set of proficiencies interms of work organization, respect of deadlines, multiple obligations tofulfill, dynamic life experiences, transnational and cross- cultural commitments andchallenges.

Thanks to these comprehensive learning goals, MIREES combines anacademic approach with professional training, forging potential insightfulconsultants, analysts, and managers as Area Experts for international agencies,public administrations, Ministries and EU institutions, private and publiccompanies, NGOs, and Research and Study Centers, while also offering a solidbasis for further academic studies at the PhD level.

Students are expected to attend the first semester ofthe second year in one of the following partner Universities for at least 5-6months: Vytautas Magnus University at Kaunas, Corvinus University of Budapest,Saint Petersburg State University. The student mobility can be carried outalso at an associated partner University, on the basis of separate specificagreements, including the Universities of Ljubljana, Belgrade, Marmara and NewBulgarian.

The mobility is an integral part of the studentteaching program and is aimed at carrying out educational activities in orderto fulfill the required number of University credits as well as the researchactivities related to the master's thesis.

Living and studying for a semester in a MIREES PartnerUniversity allow students to combine knowledge, fieldwork, and concrete experience on the ground. In addition,they will become aware of the importance of learning different languages (evenless used or taught languages) and perspectives in order to get access to localprimary sources, to become more open minded and tolerant in the context ofmultilingual and multicultural Europe, to acquire an insightful empathy towardsthe Area for his/her own interest. As a result, they will be better prepared inmanaging differences, cross-cultural communication, transnational interactionas well as in rooting a sense of co-ownership of the process of Europeanintegration.

Therefore, as soon asthe 1st and 2nd term are spent in Italy, where in any case the Faculty isinternational and provided by the partner Universities, MIREES students canexperience their mobility and attend courses in the 3rd semester in anotheracademic institutions after the period of study in Italy.


The selection of the University partner forthe mobility period is to be negotiated with the MIREES International AcademicBoard (IAB) on the basis of the following:

The teaching plan and the thesis project

The student's skills developed during thefirst year of study in Forlì and motivation (including language skills)

The number of available exchange placesoffered by the hosting University.

MIREES mobility is provided by theLLP/Erasmus, by the Erasmus Mundus External Cooperation Window and by theMIREES Mobility Scheme (MMS, for European countries or students who are noteligible to the LLP/Erasmus scholarships) or by any other bilateralagreement with the University of Bologna.

Exceptions might be considered by the IAB andinvolve the Associate partners' Universities.

One of the main peculiarities of MIREES program is its research component.Particularly, students are strongly encouraged to improve their research anddata processing skills by collecting essential sources for their thesis work inthe geo-political field as well as in the selected disciplinary field throughfieldworks. This is one of the main task of their mobility experience in one ofthe Partner Universities during the 3rd semester. In other words, students areexpected to take benefit from their mobility by deepening their knowledge whilevisiting their geopolitical area of specialization, and by doing fieldworkresearch. Moreover, in order to strengthen the research dimension, a compulsorymethodological seminar is foreseen during the second year (between February andMarch), when students are expected to present a work-in-progress of theirthesis research, including research questions, bibliography, and one chapter toan international Commission of Mirees professors. These work-in-progressseminars take place in the Universities were students spend their mobility andin Forlì, for those who are spending the mobility in Associated Universities.Furthermore, during the second year, students are warmly invited to apply toapply and submit paper proposals to international convention: if included inpanels they can compete for a MIREES grant.


The 4th semester, when no teaching activity isscheduled, is completely devoted to the thesis writing and implementation.

Finally, during the whole academic year and for thepurpose of expanding its range of cultural activities, MIREES organizes orpromotes together with other subjects, many extra-curricular activities (inparticular conferences, seminars, workshops, book presentations, cinema events,summer schools) on topics relating to the challenges of modern society inpolitical, historical, economic and sociological thought concerning the Eastwardenlargement of EU, relationships with new neighbors and the changes takingplace in Central, Eastern Europe and the Balkans.

MIREES graduates:

- are able to gather and process socio-economic data; to use them in order to produce projects, manage mediations, draw up assessment reports at the request of research departments, international organizations, ministries, businesses and trade associations, public and private companies, public administrations.

Autonomous analytical skills are developed within all learning activities during the 2-years program implementation, in particular in disciplinary fields concerning anthropology, economics, political sciences, sociology, quantitative-statistics, history, cultural and cross-cultural communication subjects. Substantially, independent critical elaboration of sources are reinforced by the active participation in classroom activities, presentations, simulation exercises, seminars, paper research, which are regularly required during the study program. Furthermore this approaches are stimulated by raising research questions, doing research and fieldworks, consistent with the thesis objectives and their defense against an international commission.

Therefore, graduates learn to apply their knowledge and acquire analytical skills with academically critical approaches through a variety of actions, as follows:
- in their relationship with a an international pool of lecturers and the MIREES academic tutor who, inevitably applying a wide range of teaching and testing methods, allow the students to work in a complex and multi-stimulating environment, therefore acquiring flexibility and adaptability;
- during the mobility period, in which students combine disciplinary and language skills with a life experience, as well as direct contacts with their area of specialization;
- during the research activity, since students are expected to combine theoretical and methodological skills acquired during the first year of the program with theoretical and practical skills of the second year, when fieldworks, identification and process of original sources take place with the support of an international Faculty;
- in their relations with the supervisor and other Faculty members who transfer a more complete and complex set of methodologies as well as the familiarity to a multitude of approaches, stimulating graduates to gather and assess data and manage mediations.

Acquired analytical skills are assessed by lecturers during the exams of each learning activity; the assessment of students' ability to work autonomously and how much analytical skills have been acquired is also taking place during the case-study research and fieldwork implementation, the process of writing the thesis and the defense.

- are able to apply convincingly cross-cultural communication and empathic approaches to diversities

Indeed, written and oral communication skills are extensively developed in class, when oral presentations of documents, statements excerpts of theoretical studies and the production of reports are regularly requested to students and fully included in the lecturers’ methods. Furthermore, students can rely on the MIREES academic tutor’s assistance; in addition, simulation exercises and specific workshops are designed to reinforce communication skills, while memories and socio-cultural representations in movies or literature are specifically included in the teaching plan.

Acquired communication skills are assessed by lecturers in class as well as during the exams of each learning activity; assessing students' ability to communicate is also part of the activities developed in methodological seminars and during the thesis defense.

Languages skills are acquired/reinforced in class and through the active participation of the students to the different teaching activities. As MIREES is in English and all the activities are in this language, fluency in English is "naturally" strengthened while carrying out the Program. Furthermore, laboratory group-works take place for students with a similar level of language knowledge. In addition, MIREES enrolls – among others – East European students every year: as a result, they teach and/or assist with pleasure their classmates interested in learning one of their languages. This form of solidarity has a circular dimension and is highly beneficial for the students’ education since it contributes to reinforce significantly language skills acquirement, as well as cross-cultural communication. In the second year, during mobility, language skills are further strengthened by lectures and the environment.

To conclude, knowledge of languages skills is assessed:
- through mid-term and final exams in all course units (as for English)
- through mid-term and final exams of the provided East-European language courses;
- by the Faculty of partner universities during the mobility period in the 3rd semester.


CAPACITÀ DI APPRENDIMENTO (LEARNING SKILLS)

MIREES graduates:

- are able to organize their work, to carry out networking activities and to work under stress;

- are able to interact empathically with the individual and the dynamics of the area of their expertise;
- are able to use analytical tools and apply learned methods while further developing their studies at post-graduate levels;
- are able to identify appropriate tools and learning paths to develop their own cultural and specialist knowledge and professional skills.

While dealing with disciplinary contents in anthropology, economics, political sciences, sociology, quantitative-statistics, history, cultural, and cross-cultural communication subjects, the students’ ability to apply the conceptual and empirical knowledge is achieved both in class activities and in study-group exercises, as well as through the critical analysis of texts, documents, statements, theoretical contributions of the international literature proposed for self-learning phases. Additional, crucial opportunities are offered by the elaboration and assessment of evidences, collection of primary sources for case-studies research and fieldwork designed and carried out under the guidelines and the assistance of the professors and the MIREES academic tutor.

Learning skills are acquired throughout the whole study period, using the above-described teaching methods and tools, in contexts additionally marked by needs of adaptability, deadline stress, work organization, intercultural communication with the international environment. Together, all these experiences contribute the achievement of professional, analytical and research learning outcomes.

The achievement of these outcomes takes place regularly throughout the different learning activities of the Program, the research period, the fieldwork and the presentation of the collected and processed data included in the thesis during the defense.

The outcomes achieved are assessed during the exams of each learning activity which, as indicated clearly in each course unit program on the MIREES website, may be written and/or oral, in a test format, or through the production of individual papers; the support of MIREES tutor is an additional opportunity for students to rely on an academic further assistance.

MODALITA' E CADENZA DI STUDI E CONSULTAZIONI
The Public Alumni Conference, held at the Vytautas Magnus University, Kaunas, on 17-18 October 2013 has been designed as a follow up of (a) a previous consultation with stakeholders held in Forlì, Italy, on September 19, 2007, (b) an analysis of the graduate questionnaires collected by Alma Laurea by the QA Commission of MIREES and, then, (c) a fruitful exchange of ideas with the International Monitoring Commission of the Lithuanian Centre for QA in Higher Education, Studijų Kokybės Vertinimo Centras (SKVC), during its visit to Forlì in March 2013, whose main points have been included in the final report attached to the Accreditation letter of May 27, 2013.
The Kaunas Conference was a vivid and dynamic event where Alumni met stakeholders and MIREES University Partners. They discussed MIREES learned skills and the needs of the market labor in terms of social responsibility, multifunctionalism, interdisciplinarity, adaptability, language expertise, learning outcomes and organizational experience. A double-sided process has been emphasized in this regard, since internationalization implies not only a transformation of the University education far beyond any vocational temptations (which is not in its goal), but also a radical change in mindset and approaches of enterprises. Furthermore, it has emerged that the task of Universities is to educate youngsters to become initiators of enormous changes in their country, being owner of the changes particularly in time of crisis (as our times), while preserving their friendship, ties, and personal contacts – established during the Program implementation – as a basis of networks that will reinforce cross-national trust, knowledge and cooperation.
