Content

As the name suggests, the Master of International Relations theorises political international relations among states. In order to comprehend these, why they succeed or fail, you need to comprehend the political set-up of a state as well as its national context. Based upon this structure, you learn to measure the political or economic relations among states, international conflicts or involvements of international organisations. You learn to theorise issues of conflict, cooperation or globalisation.

Your curriculum contains history of political thought, macroeconomics or conflict resolution. Some universities may emphasise one particular element of international relations, such as economic relations or human rights matters. Others may place a regional focus on the Masters course, such as European Union affairs or Asian politics.

The two-year Masters programme usually requires a political science degree (Bachelor or equivalent) as obligatory admission criterion. Once you have successfully accomplished the Masters course, you are entitled the academic degree Master of Arts or Science, depending on the university.
