International Relations

The Luiss master’s degree program in International Relations, taught entirely in English, offers a global mindset and interdisciplinary studies in key subjects to jump start a career with international institutions, non-governmental and governmental organizations and private companies operating around the world.

Employment and professional opportunities for graduates

The Luiss master’s program in International Relations prepares graduates for careers in diplomacy, as international security experts for both the public and private sectors and in the management of Euro-Mediterranean issues. The program furthermore responds to the growing need for highly trained figures within international organizations and the traditional diplomatic sector that are able to handle both old and new, emerging challenges.
Graduates of the program may begin careers with international and European organizations, as specialists in international and European politics, international affairs reporters, journalists, private consultants or consultants to the armed forces.
