International Relations in a Historic Perspective

Course Description

Judged best in the field

The highly regarded Keuzegids Master’s Selection Guide 2016 ranked Utrecht University’s International Relations in Historical Perspective programme as the best in the field in the Netherlands.

Elsevier Best Studies Top Rated Programme

In this year's Elsevier Best Studies Survey, students have also rated International Relations as the best programme.
International Relations in Historical Perspective bridges the historical and political science approaches of international relations. In this way, the programme offers you the best of both worlds.

The international political stage is much like a game of chess between multiple players. During the course of this Master's programme you will gain a greater understanding of the parties involved, and prepare yourself for a future as a participant in the game of global politics.

Political theory is an important tool in the analysis of international developments. In order to fully understand those developments, however, you need a wider historical viewpoint. Nothing is without its history – and while history never repeats itself exactly, you can learn a great deal from it. By bridging history and political science, the Master of International Relations in Historical Perspective (IR/HP) offers in-depth insight into both worlds.

The programme content uses central research themes that help shed light on modern international politics and provide students with the tools to analyse a wide range of topics.

During the programme, you can choose to participate in an internship of at least three months, which is an important step towards obtaining future employment. You will put your knowledge and skills into practice, and this experience will form an important part of your resume.
