Faculty of Society and Economics, Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences Globalisation, new degrees of cultural and economic integration, the growing importance of an international perspective in companies and organisations, increased mobility – these factors and more are generating a new, broader appreciation of international relations among all levels of society. At the same time, the field of international relations is growing ever more complex and requires a new breed of specialists with an international and transnational perspective, as well as profound theoretical and methodological know-how.
Our International Relations bachelor’s programme produces graduates who can best meet these complex requirements. The highly interdisciplinary programme weaves together a range of complex subject areas – political science, economics, law, social sciences and research methods – which provides you with a sound theoretical basis. At the same time, you’ll acquire key methodological competencies for research and career contexts. This profound knowledge enables graduates to not only conduct sophisticated, expert analyses of current and future international relations, but also develop effective strategies and approaches to questions and issues in the field.
Our curriculum continually emphasises applied learning, which is reflected in the many small group exercises and projects where you’ll focus on the current developments and challenges in the field on both a national and a global level. At the same time, you’ll develop important managerial and interpersonal soft skills which will help prepare you for communication in complex business environments. Students are required to undertake multiple internships and/or a semester abroad in the field of international relations, which means they leave our university with demonstrable, practical experience already featured prominently on their C.V.
