Today, political, economic, environmental, and healthcare problems emerging on a global scale call for new approaches that require multi-level thinking for problem solving in all areas of public life by building local, national, and global connections. The Thesis Master’s Program in International Relations and Globalization is designed to vest you with an in-depth understanding of how local, national, and international institutions cope with global problems, equip you with a robust theoretical foundation to accurately evaluate and assess emerging problems, and provide you with the necessary skillset to conduct empirical data-based research in order to understand the best governance examples in the world.

In recognition of the multidimensional nature of global governance, the program offers a rich curriculum that covers international relations, public policies, political theories, political economy, and sociology from a multidisciplinary perspective.
