Globalisation transcends not only national borders but also the traditional borders between disciplines, professions and tasks. Whatever the activities they are engaged in, from institution and capacity-building in failed states to local and regional development policies, governance professionals and academics need to be able to draw on a broad multidisciplinary background in order to effectively face the challenges confronting them.
The Graduate School of International Studies was founded in June 2001 as a cooperative venture of the Faculties of Economics, Humanities, Law and Sociology in order to provide top class post-graduate teaching and research of such a multidisciplinary and international character. Currently the School offers a two-year Master's Degree in European and International Studies and a three-year PhD programme in International Studies.
The School can draw on a multinational staff with extensive international teaching and research experience employing the whole gamut of teaching methods from the conventional to the innovative.
