The International Relations (Dual Degree) programme is offered by the University of Haifa . The School of Political Sciences at the University of Haifa, established in 1972, offers students the resources and talent of one of Israel's most prominent academic research centers that is engaged in teaching and scholarship in the fields of diplomacy studies, political thought, international relations, public policy, public administration, local administration, comparative and Israeli politics.
The Division of International Relations was established in 2000 as part of the School of Political Sciences and plays an important role in training the future generation of researchers and practitioners in the field of International Relations.
Students will spend two semesters of study at each institution and, including a written thesis, will cover a curriculum at Haifa University that has been crafted to elucidate the key role of diplomacy in addressing the broad cluster of issues that affect the Mediterranean and Middle East regions, and which can no longer be effectively dealt with exclusively from a narrow unilateral or bilateral vantage point.
The focus on the role of collaborative diplomatic mechanisms is designed to provide students with new insights, concepts and analytical tools for fully understanding the enhanced functions of diplomacy in an international setting.
The International Relations (Dual Degree) program from University of Haifa is thus intended to enable students to identify effective solutions for a broad range of political, cultural and economic issues with which they will be faced in the field.
