Program description

MA International Relations and International Organization

One world, 7 billion people, 193 sovereign states, over 600 (Non-)Governmental Organizations, 100s of multinationals, all tied up in complex processes of dis/integration, cooperation and conflict.

International Relations as a discipline is almost a century old. About its origins different interpretations exist, but in general IR emerged in response to the consequences of power politics in Europe, culminating in the First World War, and in response to specific research questions within Political Science. IR in Europe started as an interdisciplinary project, IR in Groningen still follows this tradition.

International Relations and International Organization, a track of the Master's in International Relations, offers a comprehensive study in theory and practice. Theretofore, IRIO uses a 'self-service' model. Besides the mandatory course on advanced theory and the master thesis, you can select from specialized capita and research seminars in five essential areas of Internationals Relations: International Security, International Political Economy, European Integration, Geopolitics & Connectivity and East Asian Studies. Moreover, to prepare for an international career you can organize a placement at a public or private organization in the field of international relations, where you can apply your knowledge and skills in a 'real-time' environment.

Having come from the BA International Relations and International Organisation, the MA programme is a great way to specialise in a specific topic within the field. Where the BA degree is very broad and you learn about the general themes of IR, the masters allows you to go deeper into a specific field of interest, but still in a very interdiscipl...
