Course Description

You are interested in understanding current geopolitical crises and finding ways to overcome them. You believe that we have to deal with peace just as intensively as with conflicts. The big issues and challenges of our world are exciting for you and drive you, especially those relating to peace, prosperity, environmental protection, justice, and human rights. You want to get socially involved and are curious about other cultures and ways of thinking. It is important to you to discuss solutions to a major challenge or to find a peaceful solution to a conflict.

The course focuses on understanding the interrelationships between international politics and economics, ecology and ethics, legal regulations and cultural ideas, as well as the art of diplomatic negotiations from the ground up. By studying International Relations with a focus on Global Security, you will learn how to use diplomacy as a driving force for conflict resolution. The program combines international relations with a focus on global security and combines theoretical foundations with their practical application in real projects. As part of a semester abroad, internships enable direct contact with the key players in geopolitical constellations.
