Master International Affairs at Hertie School in Berlin

The Hertie School’s Master of International Affairs (MIA) equips outstanding students and young professionals with tools of international policymaking to tackle global challenges and devise sound policy proposals in a global multilevel system. MIA graduates are well prepared for positions requiring a profound understanding of today’s global policy challenges in government, diplomacy and international organisations, as well as in the private and civil society sectors.

 

Policymakers and experts today are confronted with a wide array of global challenges. These range from a crisis-prone global economy and its repercussions, to security challenges such as new regional instabilities, nuclear proliferation, cyber warfare, and conflicts over limited resources. To meet such challenges successfully in a rapidly transforming context, knowing how to navigate the complex landscape of diverse actors and disciplines is crucial.

Master International Affairs at Hertie School: Course Content

The practice-oriented curriculum gives students a firm understanding of the international and transnational dimension of policymaking.

 

In the first year, students attend courses in global governance, international economics, international law and security policy. They are equipped with the analytical toolkit to evaluate international policies and to manage international organisations. A practice course supplements the core curriculum. Between the first and second year of study, students gain professional experience in a full-time internship in an international organisation or other relevant institutions.

 

In their second year, students choose a concentration in either finance and trade or security and sustainability which they complete with at least three electives from the respective field. Electives in the finance and trade concentration deal with the interaction between national and international economic institutions and the impact of their interventions on growth, competition, trade, or other factors such as energy supply. The security and sustainability concentration is based on a comprehensive notion of security that includes issues such as poverty, human rights or climate change, besides old and new geopolitical and military challenges. Further, they deepen their knowledge by choosing from a wide range of electives in such areas as welfare and sustainability, innovation and regulation, civil society, as well as security and development.

 

Students complete their degree requirements with a master thesis on a topic relevant to international affairs. The thesis is developed under the guidance of a supervising faculty member and can be carried out in cooperation with a practice partner.
