What is International Relations about? World politics is constantly evolving. The preconditions for international peace and security as well as human security are changing. New patterns of cooperation and conflict are developing on the regional as well as the global level. The bachelor's programme in International Relations develops your skills in analysing and reflecting upon central questions in current international relations.
During the programme you will learn about the current workings of international relations as well as recent key trends. You will also learn about predominant theoretical perspectives and central concepts upon which the International Relations discipline rests, and develop your ability to use these for independent analysis. The program also provides important knowledge about human rights, which affect and are affected by global political developments.
What makes International Relations unique? In addition to compulsory courses, you will also have the opportunity to do an internship or take optional courses in Sweden or abroad. This means you are able to get valuable practical experience in international relations, as well as the possibility to develop and create networks and contacts with relevant organisations. Former students have interned at embassies, the United Nations and non-governmental organisations.
This programme provides a good foundation for further studies at the master's level. You will also be able to work with a whole array of issues related to international relations, such as foreign policy, international aid, development, international cooperation, conflict prevention and human rights. Potential employers could be the diplomatic service, local and national administrations, non-governmental organisations and international organisations
