International Relations: International Relations and International Organization MA

One world, 7 billion people, 193 sovereign states, over 6,000 (Non-)Governmental Organisations, 1,000's of multinationals, all tied up in complex processes of dis/integration, cooperation and conflict.

International Relations as a discipline is almost a century old. About its origins different interpretations exist, but in general IR emerged in response to the consequences of power politics in Europe, culminating in the First World War, and in response to specific research questions within Political Science. IR in Europe started as an interdisciplinary project, IR in Groningen still follows this tradition.

International Relations and International Organisation, a track of the Master's in International Relations, offers a comprehensive study in theory and practice. Theretofore, IRIO uses a 'self-service' model. Besides the mandatory course on advanced theory and the master thesis, you can select from specialised capita and research seminars in five essential areas of Internationals Relations: International Security, International Political Economy, European Integration, Geopolitics & Connectivity and East Asian Studies. Moreover, to prepare for an international career you can organise a placement at a public or private organisation in the field of international relations, where you can apply your knowledge and skills in a 'real-time' environment.
