The School of International Relations and Diplomacy (IRD) is the fastest growing school at Anglo-American University. It offers accredited bachelor’s and master’s programs designed to endow graduates with a strong interdisciplinary understanding of theory and practice in the dynamic fields of international relations and diplomacy. Students enrolled in the School of IRD benefit from Anglo-American University’s unique intercultural community of students and faculty.

The Bachelor of Arts in International Relations is a three-year program that builds on knowledge of theoretical and philosophical concepts across historical contexts, with a view to better understand  politics internationally as well as domestically. The curriculum offers a balanced mix of courses on political and international relations theory, economy, philosophy and history which provide students with a solid knowledge base for their further specialization in required and elective courses dedicated to international security, foreign policy or European integration. The curriculum is complemented by a range of skills-oriented courses on writing, research or language proficiency.  

Upon completion, our students acquire the ability to critically examine and address the international/intercultural challenges of our time, such as global inequalities, economic dependency, conflict and security, or globalization including the evolving roles of organizations such as the United Nations, NATO and the European Union.

The Master of Arts in International Relations and Diplomacy builds on theory and conceptual knowledge of world affairs with an emphasis on their application in individual or collective research in the fields of international relations, conflict studies, globalization and development or diplomatic history. The Master of Arts curriculum offers also a broad range of elective courses allowing our students to pursue their interests. Graduate students cultivate their skills in research methods, diplomatic protocol or thesis writing seminar in preparation for work in governmental or non-governmental organizations, diplomacy, think tanks and academic institutions, as well as in international business organizations.
