International Relations and Political Science

International Relations

International Relations has been taught at the University of Tampere since 1966, when the first professorial post was established. Since 1994 International Relations has been among the major subjects offered for bachelor's and master's degrees, and completion of the master's degree in social sciences confers eligibility for postgraduate studies leading to a doctorate. The discipline is closely related to Political Science.

Objectives

  • To introduce students to the bases of International Relations as a branch of science, its theories, research objects and scientific methods.
  • To equip students to function in international tasks, particularly the organs of public administration, public organisations and in certain media functions.
  • To equip students for postgraduate studies in International Relations

For those studying International Relations as a major subject, studies concern the scrutiny of states' foreign policies and diplomacy, European integration, security and integration policy, the theme of war and peace, main problem areas in world politics, international organisations and the various orientations and disciplinary history of international relations.

Students leading to a master's degree endeavour through individual research to familiarise students with a theme in international relations of their own choosing, and also with the methodological applications and theoretical foundations of the discipline.

Teaching aims at cultivating students' ability to apply their knowledge of international relations and the disciplines concerned with them to administration, the life of organisations and research tasks in particular.
