More information 


Our Bachelor degree in International Relations offers students the opportunity to develop specialized knowledge in international politics, security studies, EU politics, ethnic conflict, global justice and human rights. It enables them to understand and analyze complex political and social dynamics that go beyond state borders and cultural boundaries. The structure of the program offers the opportunity for students – following introductory courses in the first year – to choose from a wide range of elective seminars.

Strength of program:
In addition to giving students grounding in history and theory, the BA in International Studies teaches future graduates about international politics, the European Union and equips them with practical knowledge that can be used in almost all countries around the world.
The knowledge acquired during the undergraduate courses lays the foundation for the MA in International Studies and other postgraduate qualifications in social sciences. Applicants will ideally be interested in social sciences and in the links between different countries, peoples and institutions and be keen to use their language skills.
We encourage our students to work independently and to solve tasks in teams. We rely on modern methodologies – including simulations – and we believe that adaptability and self-reflexivity are crucial in today’s fast changing world. Our aim is to give our students skills that they can be readily used wherever they seek employment after graduation.
