International Relations

The Political Science department offers the minor International Relations to students who want to develop their knowledge of international relations. The minor is particularly appropriate for students interested in an international career. The field of International Relations focuses on political, economic and social conflicts with transnational causes and consequences. Solutions to these problems must therefore be sought outside of national politics.

For whom?

Students who are interrested in:

  • International relations.

  • Political, economic and social conflicts.

  • An international career.

Entry requirements:

Completed 60 ECTS from a bachelor’s programme. A completed first year of applied sciences (HBO) does not grant access to the minor.


International exchange students are contacted by their programme coordinator regarding enrollment.

Students from Dutch universities can enroll the following way:
1) Studenten van andere universiteiten moeten zich bij de UvA inschrijven
als bijvakstudent, zie
2) Meld je aan voor de minor via het aanmeldformulier in de studiegids.
3) Schrijf je daarna in voor de vakken via SIS.
