PISE is an interdisciplinary programme that combines elements of three distinct subject areas providing a critical perspective while situating them in the broader social science context. By choosing the appropriate courses, students can then continue on to the relevant Master degrees in Philosophy, International Relations, Global Development and Entrepreneurship and Economics and Finance offered by Ca’ Foscari since they will have accumulated enough credits to gain access to each of them.

Taught entirely in English, PISE was patterned after the Oxford Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) programme, which was first offered at the prestigious British University in the 1920s.

The PISE lecture series captures the spirit of this new programme: scholars such as Marc Lynch, who also assist leading practitioners in decision making, demonstrate how academic knowledge can be applied in working towards the common good.

In this context professors such as Fred Lawson, Gregory Gause, III, Joseph Grieco, John Ikenberry, Gilles Kepel, Eugene Rogan, Avi Shlaim, Roger Goodman, Rosemary Foot, Rosemarie Brisciana, Gary Sick, Michael Willis, Helene von Bismarck, Patrick Cohrs and many others came to Venice for lectures, seminars and held research fellowships at Ca’ Foscari creating a bridge between PISE students and the world of international research.
