The substantive focus of the MA program in International Relations: Global Governance and Social Theory, which is offered jointly by the University of Bremen and the Jacobs University Bremen, is the analysis of governance beyond the nation state. This research topic is examined from a political science perspective, and within the context of enduring processes of globalization and increasing cross-border activity. This emphasis on the governance perspective and the explicit integration of general social theoretical questions in the context of social and political change is a unique feature of the M.A. in International Relations. Students will participate in a small, relatively specialized, and academically rigorous, all English degree program.
