International Relations and Regional Studies

The MA programme of International Relations and Regional Studies combines comprehensive study of international relations as an academic discipline and political practice with in-depth understanding of one or several key regions of the world. The programme is suitable for all those who plan a career with an international focus, be it in diplomacy, public service, private sector or with non-governmental organizations.
The programme provides in?depth knowledge about contemporary international relations, central principles and sources of international law, traditional and critical approaches in security studies, foreign policy analysis, conflict management and resolution mechanisms, politics, society, economics and international relations in the European Union, Russia and Eurasia, and the Baltic Sea region.
The regional foci grow out of the multinational faculty’s research interests and competences and reflects Estonia’s historical experience at the border of Europe and Russia – an experience which is highly relevant for understanding other countries located in-between bigger powers.
Since 1989, Estonia has been in the centre of democratic, economic and geopolitical change in Eastern Europe. Learning about International Relations in one of the smallest EU member states, situated at the centre of the Baltic Sea region and on Russia’s doorstep, has the potential to offer unique insights into international politics.

Student testimonial

Despite its size, Tartu is full of life and has a unique international atmosphere. Due to its geographical location, it is a meeting point of cultures from East and West where many EU and non-EU students meet and learn about each other’s countries and cultures. I personally came here to learn more about Russia and the post-Soviet space from an Eastern perspective, while many Russian students for example come here to learn more about the EU or even Russia from a more Western perspective. This creates a unique learning environment in which students benefit greatly from this international diversity.

Hannah Schaper (Germany), student of International Relations and Regional Studies 2015/2016
