The programme is directed to anyone interested in different aspects of international relations and focuses on three specific areas: European integration (The European Union); East Asian and Pacific relations (China, Japan, Korea); new security threats (cyber security, energy security). The profile of the Tallinn University of Technology and the School of Business and Governance creates good opportunities for developing interdisciplinary goals and i.e. to combine studies in International Relations with subjects of Economics and Legal Studies among others. In addition, several European languages as well as Mandarin Chinese, Japanese and Korean can be taken as free electives.
Various research projects and other activities of common interest have been developed in cooperation with Bologna University, Stanford University, Waikato University in New Zealand, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Pusan National University, Beihang University in China, NATO Strategic Communication Centre in Riga and many other outstanding research centres all over the world. Through student exchange programs (i.e. Erasmus), many students will spend part of their studies in partner universities abroad.

The two-year Master’s program in International Relations and European-Asian Studies is built upon bachelor studies and is designed to prepare specialists in various areas of International Relations such as diplomacy and the conduct of foreign relations as well as mass media, policy planning or academic research among others. The program aims to provide students with the necessary knowledge and skills to take advantage of an increasing range of professional opportunities of an international dimension. The students can develop their specialisation in the narrower fields of EU studies, Asia-Pacific Studies, and security studies or develop interdisciplinary skills between political, legal, technological and economic studies.
