At Blanquerna – Ramon Llull University, we are first: You can now study International Relations in Barcelona

The Degree in International Relations has an academic structure based principally on the main Anglo-Saxon models of reference in the world, giving special emphasis to the political science dimension. A second element of particular significance with regard to the contents of the degree lies in the importance given to the separate study of “regional” problems, understood to be an approach focused on the political dynamics of a series of territories of our planet.

In our case, this emphasis is made clear by the compulsory nature of seminars on regional studies, which will have a significant weight in the curriculum. In this sense – though logically without detracting from the weight and importance of the European dimension which must necessarily be present in this degree – a special significance and dimension will be given to a fact that differentiates our territorial location, the Euro-Mediterranean geopolitical dynamic.

Within the structure of the curriculum of this degree, there are three distinct areas that play an important role in our teaching: the modern language (English for International Relations), the Practicum and, logically, the Senior Thesis (end-of-degree research). In addition, the nucleus of the student’s studies is based on the core areas of Law, Economy, Communication and Philosophy.

Having acquired a solid foundation in these areas, the student can construct his or her own curriculum for specialization within one of three large areas: International Politics, Economy, International Commerce and Development and International Communication. Thus, the plan of studies has a clearly interdisciplinary nature, in which students will have the opportunity, if they so desire, to do one semester of the degree abroad at a foreign university with whom the School has signed the corresponding agreement of cooperation.

Master Classes

Dedicated to material of a theoretical nature, the master classes are taught by specialists and researchers in the field of International Relations in order to give students personalised training in their particular fields thereby acquiring a breadth of knowledge.


At the seminar classes, teacher-tutors work 6 hours a week with 12 students maximum. This close interaction creates a personal relationship with each student. It is also a way of getting to know about the professionwith a teacher-tutor who has direct links with the world of work. The second cycle will be the beginning of your professional experience: in third level you will live communication from the professional point of view. In fourth level, specialisation will be divided into topic areas.
