International Relations

The current scenario has made it evident that political, economic and social processes are increasingly international. Thus the growing relevance of the study of international relations, which has become a scientific field in university education.

However, the decrease in the number of years needed for a Bachelor degree led to the need to complement and further the skills acquired in the Bachelor program in International Relations or in other fields. The Master in International Relations (2nd studies cycle) aims to meet that need and further students’ skills in analysing global complex interactions, combining the core topic of international politics and perspectives from other fields such as Law and Sociology, but especially Economy, given the importance of economic internationalization.

The Master in International Relations is a four-semester program that awards 120 ECTS,  authorized under Announcement nº 261/2013 – 2nd series – Nº 143 – 26 June, in Diário da República. The Master is accredited by the Assessment and Accreditation Agency for Higher Education (ACEF/12/00151).
