The Bachelor’s Degree in International Relations is a full-time multidisciplinary programme that introduces students to the study of relationships between state actors in the international system and their interactions with inter-governmental organisations and corporations. The programme combines political science, economics, history, foreign languages, international law and sociology. The curriculum encompasses contemporary issues such as globalisation, political systems, processes of integration, world policy, conflict resolution, national security, geopolitics, etc.

Students are equipped with knowledge and skills to understand relations between nations as well as the internal workings of other countries and the role of non-governmental actors and international organisations in world affairs. Students must undergo a pre-graduation internship and defend a graduation thesis in order to receive a degree.

Upon successfully completing the programme, graduates pursue careers in local, regional and international governmental organisations, embassies, ministries and NGOs, law firms and a range of businesses.
