This MA program comes in two formats.
The one-year program gives students a strong foundation in international affairs, including contemporary issues of security and global economy. For a 360-degree perspective on international events, their causes and consequences, you will take courses in three different tracks: International Relations and Law, International Political Economy and Development, and International Political Sociology and History.
The two-year program is designed for candidates who graduated from a three-year bachelor’s program and wish to deepen their thinking about the workings of international relations. After a year of introductory courses, we offer students a combination of gateway and elective classes so they can build specialized knowledge in subfields such as conflict and security or development.
