Bachelor Degree in International Relations & Diplomacy


Schiller International University’s Bachelor Degree in International Relations and Diplomacy offers students an international curriculum that encompasses scientific technological, cultural and humanitarian concerns, as well as the more traditional areas of diplomatic activities. Schiller International University students initially pursue courses in the liberal arts, in order to give them a thorough foundation in history, economics, political science, and international relations. In their final two years of study, students will go on to apply their analytical skills to case studies, debates, and on-site visits.

The International Relations and Diplomacy program equips students with the expertise they need to pursue careers in international organizations – fields such as law, government, business, and journalism, as well as moving onward to graduate programs in political science and international relations.

3. Apply analytical and critical thinking skills to matters related to international relations and diplomacy.
