Undergraduate degrees

First Year

Your first year will begin with a broad introduction to International Relations as a whole. You will become acquainted with the main periods and events that have shaped its history since the 16th century. We will provide you with the methodological and practical tools to understand and evaluate arguments about contentious issues in international affairs, and you will also be given the opportunity to complete an internship, contribute in one of the many IE labs, or both.

Through the IE module you will learn the dynamics, abilities and attitudes that will help you to guide people, including yourself. By the end of the year you will be able to apply economic theories to your daily work, and understand important social and political phenomena, as well as different forms of international governance and organizations.

Second Year

In your second year you will continue deepening your understanding of International Relations from the perspectives of international law and international political economics. You will also start looking into the world of NGOs, and learning about international development and aid. You will also be exposed to a wide array of tools and methodological approaches used by political scientists. By the end of the year you will be more confident discussing scholarly articles and embarking on your own research projects. In order to practice and apply what you’ve learnt, you will be able to join an IE lab or complete an internship.

Third Year

During your third year you will focus on topics such as as international trade, macroeconomics, international finance, multinational corporations, human rights and the implications they have on international development. You will not only deepen your knowledge in general purpose organizations like UN, but also in specialized institutions, such as NATO, WTO, the IMF and the International Criminal Court. You will continue developing your organizational skills and studying peace and conflict resolution to establish the most important competences related to leadership. This year you will be required to choose an exchange program with one of our prestigious partner institutions around the world.

Fourth Year

Your fourth and last year is mainly focused on your final project, where you will apply all of the knowledge gained throughout your subjects, internships, IE Labs, and exchange programs. You will also keep on specializing in the areas of your interest by choosing electives, and you will keep on improving your language skills.
