News from Feb 22, 2016
This Monday marked the beginning of an important week for the Center for Global Politics, as once again the center plays host to the latest round of in-house classes. This morning, students from around the world who take part in the International Relations Online (IRO) blended learning masters program met at the CGP within Freie Universität Berlin.
First up the diverse M.A. International Relations Online student cohort gathered together with their fellow peers, lecturers and program coordinators for a group photo at the Henry Ford Building upon their arrival. Even the wind and rain failed to dampen the cheerful atmosphere and all of the students were ready to dive in to their first day of in-house classes for 2016.
The Master of Arts International Relations Online in-house classes themselves are a unique component of the CGP’s blended learning master programs. While these programs are conducted mostly online, the in-house classes, held roughly every 6 months, give students the ability to meet together in a single place and learn as a cohort. Not only does this help them gain some of the benefits of learning International Relations in person, it also helps them socialize among their peers and build up contacts for later in life.
