The International Studies programme at Aarhus University provides students with the background necessary to understand and assess current events and global trends. They will become experts in international affairs. The programme is truly interdisciplinary, drawing on political science, law, anthropology, sociology and history, while also training students in international project management. Professors from different departments are teaching courses from their own disciplines in the programme, so that students benefit from a genuinely multidisciplinary academic experience.

Career Opportunities

The interdisciplinary nature of this programme prepares students to push agendas and work strategically in leadership positions or at internationally oriented jobs. Graduates may find themselves working in embassies, private companies, NGOs, government organisations, or in research positions. Notable alumni have landed in managerial positions at companies such as LEGO and Disney. Others have worked in foreign ministries or as political consultants in government. Yet others have pursued a PhD in the social sciences or the humanities, in Denmark or abroad.
