The University Master's degree in Advanced Studies in International Affairs replaces the Master's degree in International Relations, which has been given for two academic years, and represents continuity (expanded and enhanced) of a project that began in 2012 with the creation of the Degree in International Relations. As such, the Master's degree is the result of 7 years of academic experience in the field of International Relations. Blanquerna has been the pioneer in Catalonia, not only in offering studies at Degree and Postgraduate level in International Relations, but also by offering them in English.
The Master's degree offers a global and transdisciplinary approach to the main actors of international relations and to the great challenges which they face. A complex combination of agenda and actors (complex already by themselves and still more in combination) that can only be faced with the tools of versatile, transversality and simultaneously structured learning. A versatility that is brought by the three academic pillars on which the program is built: the politological, the economic and the legal. A transversality determined by the application of these three pillars to diverse geopolitical realities and to diverse subject-matters, for example security, cooperation, development, etc. And a structure that seeks to generate knowledge in a sequential and incremental form across the configuration of its modules. In this way, the objective of the Master's degree is the education of professionals who can offer a novel outlook in the field of the International Relations, as well as for researchers who by means of their specialized and applied knowledge, contribute to its understanding.
So that the students assimilate and consolidate the knowledge and acquire diverse skills in the field of the International Relations, the curriculum of the Master's degree covers a wide set of topics and perspectives that are structured in three main blocks:
