Student Profile

This bachelor's degree is the perfect option if you are interested in international life and specifically in the different political, diplomatic, socio-economical, security, environmental and cultural manifestations which are so often interconnected in today's globalised world.

You must be willing to learn about and have an influence on the international and transnational societies, characterised by the interaction of public and private actors in an environment in which the rules of the game are less determining than when ruled by national policies. There is also a need for you to be interested in learning about the main manifestations of national politics (institutions and systems, individual and group political behaviour, social ideas and movements).

To enrol in this degree it is recommended that you have a critical spirit and varied, cross-curricular and integrating interests, as well as the capacity to analyse and synthesise data. Finally, you should also have a good level of oral and written expression, and a B2 level of knowledge of English, acquired before or during your studies, which will allow you to optimise your learning process and make the most of what you have learned once you enter the professional world. Please note that approximately 50% of the subject are offered in English.
