International relations are discussed, analysed and assessed from a political and socio-economical point of view within the course of study. A logical sequence of Politics, Economics and Law as well as Social Sciences and teaching of sound methodological skills enables graduates to think internationally and transnationally, to analyse problems in a sophisticated way, to abstract and to integrate acquired expert knowledge and methodological knowledge in related fields. So they can easily acquaint themselves with numerous and complex subject areas and independently develop strategies to solve the problems. Furthermore, students acquire near-native fluent command of English including relevant technical terms during all courses since it is a course of study exclusively taught in English. Multidisciplinarity of the course of study provides for the complex connection between aspects of Politics, Economics and Social Sciences of international relations in times of globalisation. Profound knowledge of international relations with local, regional, international as well as global focus are taught with regard to current developments and challenges.
Graduates of the undergraduate degree programme possess sound knowledge of basic concepts and methods of Politics, Economics and Social Sciences and are conscious about the requirements of socially responsible action.
