Focus is directed particularly toward modern theories of conflict and cooperation, theories of European integration, and international political economy. A progressive curriculum in soft skills and research methods in social science prepares students for high-quality expert analytical work in practice and academia. Structured emphasis on the development of students' analytical skills throughout the program prepares students for success on the global labour market or postgraduate study among the global academic competition.
