Introduction to the programme

Do you want to work with contemporary politics and governance across borders, sectors and administrative levels?

International Politics and Governance provides insight into the formation, execution, and management of contemporary politics and governance, particularly where problems, decisions, and solutions cross sectors, national borders, or administrative levels. The purpose of the programme is to educate social science graduates who can perform professionally in international organisations and in organisations operating at both international and domestic levels.  

The programme gives you insight into international, European, and interregional politics and governance in and around international organisations (e.g. EU, WTO, NATO, EEA), ministries and government agencies, as well as in other public and private organisations. 

As a student at International Politics and Governance you will acquire the skills needed to understand, interpret, and independently conduct analyses related to international politics and governance, e.g. regarding contemporary policy challenges within health and food, environment, climate adaptation, trade, digitalization, foreign and security policy, and more.  


The programme qualifies graduates for work in international organisations, in diplomatic representations, chambers of commerce, interest organisations, financial institutions, think-tanks, public relations firms, ministries, government agencies, regional and local government, and more.
