The International Studies program starts from fresh theoretical insights and actual, current processes of global change. Globalization and integration are crucial aspects of today’s world, but they are only part of the picture. This program takes a special interest in the relationship, the encounters between global institutions, policies and ideas on the one hand and regional, national, and local ones on the other.
It is the complexity of this interconnectedness which is at the core of our curriculum – in politics, in economics, and in culture (primarily understood as the variety in collective beliefs, perceptions and behavior, without which political change is incomprehensible). Our MA program discusses this relationship synchronically and diachronically, across time and space.
