European History after 1945 (BA) 
The course tackles the history of Europe after 1945, bringing together national dimensions, the integration process, and global transformations (such as the impact of the Cold War on the European continent or the consequences of decolonization). It offers an overview of the dynamics of European construction, both at the institutional level and within the single European states.

Italy and European Integration (BA) 
This course offers a fresh approach to the study of Italian politics, economics, and society after 1945. It discusses interactions and reciprocal influences between Italian and European politics after 1945, dealing with both the attitude of Italian diplomacy toward the construction of Europe and the impact of European institutions and policies on the Italian political system, economy, and society.

The EEC/EU in Global History (MA) 
The course zooms in on the development of a common European foreign policy and the role of the EEC/EU in global affairs. Based mostly on seminars and students’ discussions on assigned readings and primary sources, it offers students the opportunity to conduct archival research at Historical Archives of the European Union (Florence).

Studies on European Integration History (Ph.D.) 
The course is based on a series of intensive seminars with Ph.D. students on topics of the history of European integration.
