Bachelor of Science in International Affairs

DESCRIPTION

This course provides students with an in-depth understanding of the exciting discipline of international relations. Students will learn about the workings of political institutions in countries around the world and explore the complex field of relations between nations. Topics in governance, public policy, public administration, national security and border control ensure that students receive a broad and current education in the range of issues which are covered under the label of international relations.

In addition to acquiring specialist knowledge and competencies in International Relations and Psychology, students will graduate with a range of generic skills such as critical thinking, enhanced communication abilities, problem solving and general business topics. They will also develop ethically based and socially responsible attitudes and behaviors.

PACE

On years 1 & 2, the program is following a classical academic year rhythm. We do not have classes on Fridays, allowing our students to work that day if they need/want to.

On year 3, the rhythm is organized in such a way that our students can work Part-Time, which paves the way for employment. Our Career & Development Department offers Career & Outplacement services for our students.

If you follow the three years, you’ll earn 180 ECTS Credits.

VALIDATION/ THESIS

At the end of Year 3, the student will have to defend a Thesis which will carry on one of the subjects studied during the programme’s Major.
