Course content

Within the one-year Master's degree in International Relations, you choose one of the following six Master's specializations:

- International Security: its main focus is the phenomenon of, and theoretical reflection on, 'violence' in its broader context.
- International Political Economy: it focuses on the interaction between states, markets and societies. Its primary aim is to increase our understanding of the dynamics of these three building blocks.
- European Integration: it explores the history, theory and policies of the European Union and her member states.
- Global Governance: it seeks to understand the role of international organizations in global politics from a world society perspective.
- International Relations and International Organization: combines and explores all four areas mentioned above.
- East Asian Studies: it focuses on the political economy of contemporary East Asia, in particular the political economies of China, Japan and Korea. (This specialization only starts in September!)

You can work in international business, non-profit or government organizations, in the media, and at a university or a private research institute.
