Professional Higher Education in International Relations


Professional Higher Education in International Relations

Nowadays, experts in international relations are in demand not only in diplomatic service—they are indispensable both at state structures and at municipal government bodies of any level; they are sought after in financial and commercial structures, the sphere of services and non-commercial structures that are closely involved with foreign partners and directed towards the foreign market.

The curricula implemented at the Faculty enable students to obtain substantial knowledge in the area of international relations. On completing the course of studies, you will be able to orientate with confidence in the field of international cooperation, to critically assess the processes taking place in society and politics, and to find ways of resolving interstate as well as international conflicts. The carefully designed and well-balanced curricula in conjunction with the Faculty´s internationally recognized teaching staff foster the development of a systemic, analytical approach to issues of international relations.

Since a successful career in international relations requires communication skills in a multicultural environment, the curriculum foresees the study of at least three foreign languages.

Graduates and students of our Faculty are employed at Estonia´s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, at the Republic´s foreign representations, at EU and NATO structures, and at a variety of international organizations. Many are successful in implementing their skills in the sphere of international business and foreign trade.

Academic education in the domain of international relations creates pre-requisites for employment in the diplomatic and analytical spheres, for research and instruction in the top and medium section of management.
