Undergraduate Program in International Relations
The undergraduate degree in International Relations stands out for its innovative design and original content. It differs from other training of the same type based essentially on the study of public law. This training provides students with the essential analysis grids to understand international relations, international organizations and the interdependencies between countries, the development and analysis of foreign policies, the study and analysis of the positioning of countries in international politics, as well as the identification and analysis of political risks in different countries and regions.
The disciplines encompassed by the study of international relations aim mainly to understand the complexity of international dynamics and their challenges as well as the different sets of actors and the confrontations of interests and strategies of States and political organizations. In this sense, the training offered by the Faculty aims to give our students a global vision of political and socio-economic issues and to develop their ability to understand the changes in international relations, the dynamics of power relations, the games of alliance, belligerence and the alternation of war and peace in the life of States.
The undergraduate degree in International Relations consists of two blocks:
- a block containing a set of modules followed by all the students of each of these two undergraduate degrees – in other words a “Major”
- 6 modules, students choose from a list of 7 concentrations – in other words a “Minor”
The diversity of possible combinations between the "Major" and the "Minor" allows the students to build a tailor-made profile, adapted to their aspirations and meeting the current requirements of the job market.
The choice of a concentration is not compulsory in the Applied Economics and Behavioral Sciences for Public Policy degrees.
However, students in these two programs can add specific modules to their courses, by spending an additional semester at the FGSES, after obtaining their undergraduate degree.
Concentration modules start in L2.
