New International Collaboration with Johns Hopkins University in Bologna 

The Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) and the International Graduate School at Tel-Aviv University (TAU), Gershon H. Gordon Faculty of Social Sciences have partnered to launch a cooperative degree program. This two-year program will enable students to earn a Master of Arts in International Affairs at SAIS Europe, the school’s European campus located in Bologna, Italy, and a Master of Arts at Tel Aviv University International (TAUi) in one of the following English-led degree programs: Conflict Resolution and Mediation, Cyber Politics and Government, Developing Countries, and Security and Diplomacy. Students in this two-year program spend one year at each campus and can begin their studies in either Bologna or Tel Aviv.  

For more than 65 years, SAIS Europe has prepared students for global careers in public service, diplomacy, business, and nonprofit organizations under an American system of graduate education. SAIS graduates have become creative leaders who can see beyond borders and work across sectors.   

This collaborative program is led by SAIS Europe Director, Michael Plummer and TAU Social Sciences Faculty Dean, Prof. Itai Sened, who said: “Since its founding in the mid-1960s, the Gershon H. Gordon Faculty of Social Sciences at Tel-Aviv University has been an excelling, highly ranked and globally appreciated institution, led by its innovative researchers and teachers,” said TAU Social Sciences Faculty Dean, Prof. Itai Sened. “The faculty holds an important role and duty of making current, updated and precise knowledge available to its students and researchers around the world. Our agenda is to train and equip the students with knowledge and experience to enable them to improve our society and help create a better world. We are proud and excited to launch a collaboration with the Bologna branch of Johns Hopkins University. This new collaboration will enable students from both universities to gain two master’s degrees, one from each institution, in a short period of two years.” 

Through this partnership, Tel Aviv University joins McGill University (Canada), Sciences Po Lille (France), SOAS London (UK) the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna (Austria), University of Leiden (The Netherlands), and University of Bologna (Italy) and Hopkins-Nanjing Center (China), as one of SAIS Europe’s cooperative degree partners.
