Offered jointly with the Université Paul-Valéry Montpellier 3 (UPVM) and in collaboration with the Université de Strasbourg, Sousse and Meknès, this master’s degree programme gives you an in-depth knowledge of the countries along the south shore of the Mediterranean and their interaction with Europe. The two years of study take place between Italy, France, Tunisia or Morocco and provide you with interdisciplinary skills related to the study of migration in the Mediterranean and intercultural mediation, historical and social skills, qualitative and quantitative analysis tools, field research techniques, the analysis of collected data and European planning skills. An emphasis is placed on developing your linguistic skills, in particular Hebrew, Arabic and Moroccan. The degree also includes an internship, allowing you to acquire work experience in the field or carry out independent research. The programme is taught in English and French. Upon completing your studies, you receive a double diploma awarded by both Ca’ Foscari and UPVM. With the skills you obtain in this plurilingual and multicultural context, you can establish yourself in diverse professional fields, from sustainable planning to Euro-Mediterranean cooperation. You can also work in the organisation and promotion of cultural events, social and educational activities, or the development of sustainable tourism. In each of these fields, MIM graduates can rely on excellent training and a deep understanding of the role and impact of planning in a geopolitical area that is as rich and delicate as the Mediterranean.


There are no curricula. The study path comprises three modules organized at the partner universities involved (Ca’ Foscari, UPVM), a fourth module organized either at a university in Maghreb (Sousse/Meknès) or at the University of Strasbourg and a three-month internship.
