Doctoral School of International Relations and Regional Studies

This doctoral school offers a comprehensive three-year programme to train research and teaching staff in the following focus areas:

  • Political issues of international relations, global and regional development
  • Modern history

By taking a qualification-based approach, the school aims to train international affairs experts, as well as historians of international relations and the modern age who have competencies not only in their field of research, but also in related research fields. Additionally, specialists trained by the school will have fundamental and applied knowledge, along with the skills in research, analysis, communication and teaching that will enable them to work effectively both on research teams and independently as required by their professional and career goals.
