International Relations is one of the flagship studies at the Faculty of Political Science and Journalism of Adam Mickiewicz University. Taught entirely in English gives those already fluent unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the fascinating world of social interactions on the global and regional levels and provide them with direct access to the original sources of scientific discussion in the discipline.
The main objective of this particular studies is not only to familiarise students with many different approaches to theorising, describing and exploring the world of international relations, but foremost help them understand the most fundamental mechanisms that underline the nature of these relations like war, peace, conflict and cooperation. To reach these objectives we supply our students with a vast array of handpicked lectures and classes: international law, management, history, economy, philosophy, international conflict resolution, international negotiations, foreign policy and cutting edge theoretical and methodological trends in the discipline.
Our highly skilled staff makes sure that the classes are thought with at most diligence. We highly recommend this studies for advanced and upper-intermediate English speakers looking to expand their knowledge of international politics, especially if they are hoping to get into the fields that require a deep understanding of these relations like international business, management, working in international organisations and politics. We already have a track record of effectively preparing our students to enter these professions with confidence.
