Course Overview

Graduating a degree in International Relations is one of the key ways you can make the world a better place. You’ll have the opportunity to maintain positive diplomatic relations between countries, prevent international conflicts, and make sure things run smoothly between governments in our highly interconnected world.

But international relation specialists have a much broader set of career options in addition to politics and can get involved in fields like economics, social systems and cultural life of communities. All this makes International Relation studies a very versatile subject offering plenty of opportunities for ambitious international students. Download Course Catalog.
