International Relations Online (IRO) seeks to equip you with the capacity to apply theoretical concepts to pressing issues in world politics and to design recommendations for policy-making. You will gain research techniques and theoretical tools for assessing policy issues, and then train your negotiation and project management skills.
During your studies you will be invited to create your own study focus in either Global Politics or Area Studies, and then select from a series of electives on various capital flows (migration, capital and finance, energy, ICTs) and policy issues (conflict management, global cities, cultural narratives).
The final module is the completion of a master thesis, where you can further expand your research on a specific policy area or choose a topic of global politics.
The IRO curriculum offers the following study sections
