Degree: Master of Social Science (120 credits) with a major in Political Science – orientation towards International and European Relations

Teaching language: English

This programme puts issues related to European relations within a context of international society and global governance. It is intended for those who have a strong interest in international politics and global perspectives, with special focus on Europe and Europe’s role in world affairs.

Students on the International and European Relations programme are part of a study programme that has a long record of successful operation. You will be received by dedicated teaching staff, including specialist guest lecturers from other Swedish and European universities. Our mission is to provide academic training to equip students with the skill necessary to face the challenges encountered by young professionals working in complex institutional settings in an increasingly competitive and globalised labour market.

The programme also provides a solid foundation for further studies and research in the general fields of International and European relations. Graduates of the International and European Relations programme are found in governmental institutions and in international organisations in the public as well as the private and non-governmental sectors, putting their skills to work in a wide variety of functions, from the practical running of policy programs to scientific research.

The programme is divided into four components, each equivalent to one semester:

The History, Theory and Practice of International Relations
European Relations
International Governance
Master’s thesis

The curriculum consists of an array of topics, from international law and ethics to European institutions and Europe’s external relations, theories of international relations and organization, contemporary issues of international governance, and research design and methodology.

By the end of the programme students will have acquired an independent and critical approach to complex global and specifically European issues, and the skills and knowledge to enable them to contribute actively to important developments, either as practitioners or researchers.

Students will also

be able to understand, empirically and theoretically, the history, theory and contemporary implications of international and European relations, as well as the forces that drive developments;
have acquired the tools to reflect upon and analyse the dynamics of contemporary international and European relations;
have developed an in-depth understanding of the meaning and issues of international governance;

The focus of the programme is sustainable development as a vital challenge to our societies that needs to be seriously addressed by governments and public administrations. The programme is a cooperation between Human Geography, Political Science and Sociology and is a one year master, 60 credits. The first semester you take multidisciplinary courses that focus on sustainable development as a political and professional challenge and contribute to theoretical and empirical insights into the complexity of different environmental problems and their connection to social and economic dimensions. You develop an understanding of how environmental problems are framed and how these frames impact on what strategies and solutions are chosen as well as help explain why some problems are not handled at all. You also gain knowledge of what the role as a professional public official and planner can and ought to mean when working for a more sustainable society. Sustainable development is further described and analyzed from a comparative perspective to give insights into why and how conditions, problem patterns and strategies vary around the world. In the courses, we problematize theoretical perspectives on sustainable development and we also apply theories in relation to concrete cases of sustainable planning. Method of instructions and varied and include practical applications and problem-based learning. During the second semester, you choose between three courses that are focused on sustainable development with specialization in either Human Geography, Political Science or Sociology. These three courses start with a joint course module in method and analysis, which develops your insights and skills in methods and analyses of particular relevance to sustainable development. You practice your abilities and skills in operationalizing by working with different sustainability indicators and by working creatively to develop new, alternative indicators. You will also have the opportunity to develop your knowledge and abilities in traditional field-studies. In addition, you will acquire knowledge and skills in forward-looking studies, like scenario techniques and prognosis. The second semester ends with thematic studies and an independent project.
