Students will be equipped with the skills necessary to face the challenges of an increasingly competitive and globalised labour market. The programme also provides a solid foundation for further studies and research in the general field of international and European relations. The programme is divided into four components, each equivalent to one term:
- International relations
- European relations
- International governance/Guided internship
- Master’s thesis.
The curriculum consists of topics ranging from international law and security, to European institutions and Europe’s external relations, theories of international relations and organisation, diplomacy, contemporary issues of international governance, and research design and methodology. During the third term, students have the option of either taking courses with a general focus on international and global governance, or to pursue a guided internship with an organisation of relevance for international or European relations.
By the end of the programme students will have developed an independent critical approach to complex global, and specifically European, issues. Furthermore, students will gain the skills and knowledge to contribute actively to important developments, either as practitioners or as researchers. Students will also be able to:
- Understand the history, theory and contemporary implications of international and European relations, as well as the forces that drive developments
- Acquire the tools to reflect upon and analyse the dynamics of contemporary international and European relations
- Develop an in-depth understanding of issues regarding international governance and their significance
- Independently design a research question, conduct inquiries and then report on scientific matters within international and European relations.
The programme staff are engaged in research concerning international theory and the development of international norms and institutions, European security and foreign relations, European politics, regional development, political economy, e-governance, migration and diaspora studies, policy analysis and political theory.
