About the program
The World Politics and Economics Study Program is a program of interdisciplinary research combining political science and economics. EHU developed and implements this program in cooperation with Kaunas-based Vytautas Magnus University (VDU). World Politics and Economics enables students to analyse global political and economic processes without concentrating on a specific region.
The World Politics and Economics program will provide participants with professional analysis skills that will enable them to competently analyse, compare, and evaluate social, economic, and explain political processes; provide theoretical descriptions and explanations of the peculiarities of the manifestation of individual political processes; evaluate the economic situations of individual countries; demonstrate a knowledge of economic theory and the objectives and activities of the European Union and international organisations; undertake independent research; and prepare and implement practical and applied projects.
Graduates of the World Politics and Economics program are awarded the degrees of Bachelor of Political Science and Bachelor of Economics from EHU, and the degrees of Bachelor of Political Science and Bachelor of Economics from VDU.
In addition to the core subjects, students may choose one of the following three specializations:
- Contemporary International Politics
- International Development Studies
- Political Communication and Globalisation
Internships for students are available at various international and nongovernmental organizations, governmental entities, diplomatic and consular institutions, the media, and others.
Graduates will earn the required professional qualifications and skills to enable them to work in embassies, consular entities, nongovernmental organizations, and institutions and representions of the EU and other international organizations; the print media and other media outlets; and in private and state-owned companies, banks, and governmental agencies that produce macroeconomic policies and prepare draft economic policies. They will also be qualified to serve as political or economic advisers or analysts.
