Overview

Students have to complete an interdisciplinary thesis in this research-based programme. 

Equipped with extensive knowledge, strong analytical skills, some language competency, and the experience of an international community, graduates proceed to positions in international organisations, business, and government or to further research and academic careers. 

The Advanced International Studies programme at The Diplomatic Academy of Vienna - Vienna School of International Studies is a joint Master’s degree of the School of International Studies and the University of Vienna.

Study Trips

In the first MAIS year a study trip to Brussels offers students the opportunity to examine European institutions at first hand. 

During the second MAIS year there is a study trip to the countries of the Western Balkans. Additional study trips (for example to Ukraine/Poland) are offered to all programmes.

Programme Structure

  • In the first year of the Master of Advanced International Studies students attend classes in the fields of political science, international relations, economics and international economic relations, contemporary history, as well as international and European law. 
  • The student’s interests, preferences and prior knowledge are taken into account in individual student counselling sessions. The knowledge previously acquired in undergraduate programmes is complemented and supplemented, and the necessary basis for the analysis of specific topic areas in the MAIS2 year is created.
  • In the second MAIS year students apply the knowledge acquired during the MAIS1 year in specialised courses and seminars to analyse problems and solve case studies. Methodological and interdisciplinary seminars, presented by prominent personalities from politics and science, prepare students for writing their Master’s thesis.
