Bachelors in International Relations. For modernizers of public administration. Political consultants. Experts on Europe. Process innovators. Developmental aid workers. Privatizers. Nationalizers. Public policy experts. UN-employees. Foundation managers. Electoral Researchers. Producers of public goods. Non-profit managers. Social entrepreneurs. Please note: German language skills required! Our claim: To find answers to global challenges PAIR is a study pro­gram in po­lit­i­cal and ad­min­is­tra­tive sci­ence mainly taught in Ger­man. It ad­dresses stu­dents who want to an­a­lyze po­lit­i­cal sys­tems in mod­ern so­ci­eties from a na­tional, in­ter­na­tional, and Eu­ro­pean per­spec­tive. At the same time - and from the per­spec­tive of or­ga­ni­za­tional re­search and mod­ern man­age­ment the­ory - na­tional and in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tions are an­a­lyzed, and a wide knowl­edge of pub­lic man­age­ment in mod­ern states is taught. Thus, the stu­dents learn to an­a­lyze and solve com­plex prob­lems of de­ci­sion-mak­ing and gov­er­nance in the pub­lic sec­tor in their po­lit­i­cal, legal, eco­nomic, and so­cial con­text. As all other study pro­grams at ZU, PAIR has a strong in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary ori­en­ta­tion which can not only be seen in the so-called Zep­pelin Year, the first two se­mes­ters, but also in the elec­tive mod­ules from re­lated study pro­grams in later se­mes­ters. At the same time the study pro­gram pro­vides the chance of a sub­ject-spe­cific spe­cial­iza­tion that en­sures the best pos­si­ble com­pat­i­bil­ity for mas­ter pro­grams in po­lit­i­cal and ad­min­is­tra­tive sci­ence. Im­por­tant Note: All bach­e­lor pro­grams at Zep­pelin Uni­ver­sity re­quire sound knowl­edge of Ger­man. Al­though 40 per­cent of our courses are taught in Eng­lish, your Ger­man knowl­edge should be at least on the C1 level of the CEFR in order to start a suc­cess­ful study pro­gram at ZU. There­fore, we re­gret that we can­not ac­cept ap­pli­ca­tions writ­ten in Eng­lish. [-]

Bachelors in International Relations. The major in international studies introduces students to modern international systems and helps them to understand the complex political, economic, and cultural factors that affect relations among nations. Through their studies, students will acquire a strong base of knowledge of particular areas of the world and the international issues that face these areas, as well as the ability to speak at least one additional language fluently. Faculty members personally advise each student and help them explore individual interests throughout their academic career. In small, discussion-based courses, professors and students talk through issues and potential solutions. This ensures that after graduating, students will have a clear idea of where their strengths lie and will be ready to assume professional roles in our complex global environment. Within Wells’ encouraging environment, this major especially emphasizes hands-on work as part of a students’ academic career. The international studies program requires at least one semester of study abroad, guaranteeing that students will add to their academic experiences and gain an understanding of international relations first-hand.

Additionally, Wells offer students the chance to join in the annual National Model United Nations conference in New York City, a two-week experience that brings together participants from colleges and programs around the world.
