The curriculum and content of the International Relations Programs are a reflection of the University’s mission regarding justice and the increasing need to envision international political behavior in the framework of justice. In its own capacity and within the University’s mission, the international relations program promotes international and world harmony through the inculcation of the concept of justice in the analysis of international and world politics.
The program prepares graduates to be constructively critical of their immediate and broader political environment, whether in their place of work (government, education, the private sector, the media, or non-governmental organizations) or simply as citizens of both their country and the world. The program’s objective is to reinforce the vision of its graduates to regard fellow human beings not only as representatives of national and social compartments, but also as overlapping circles in a world community. In practical terms, this translates into global solidarity and the elimination of injustice everywhere. Graduates are able to produce creative and pragmatic solutions to problems and dilemmas confronting our world.
The program accomplishes its objective by exposing the candidates in a systemic and comprehensive way to the realities of the political environment through a core curriculum covering political thought, international relations and comparative politics. Through rigorous analysis, the core courses familiarize the master’s candidates with the various layers of our political landscape and provide them with the skill to become critical thinkers. A series of topical and regional electives present the students with the opportunity to practice and sharpen critical skills on a variety of timely issues.
