Course content

This program is designed for candidates who graduated from a three-year bachelor’s program, and wish to deepen their thinking about the workings of international relations. After a year of introductory courses, we offer students a combination of gateway and elective classes so they can build specialized knowledge in subfields such as conflict and security, or development.

Who we are

We combine international relations research with regional expertise in the European Union and the wider European neighborhood. Our primary focus is on the evolving role of the EU, Russia, China and the U.S. in international affairs, the rise of new powers, and the role of non-state actors in world politics and the global economy. We will help you master the analytical skills to cut through the complex web of global politics, along with in-demand practical skills in the job market.
