The curricula of our two-year Master programmes is regularly updated to reflect new global challenges and to incorporate evolutions in the fields of social and human sciences while also providing the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in international careers. The two interdisciplinary Masters are designed for students interested in professionally oriented education who wish to take a step toward a career in international affairs or development work. Our five disciplinary Master programmes aim to provide students with expertise in a key discipline as well as open the door to a PhD or an academic career. A fast track gives students the opportunity to complete their Master and PhD in five years instead of six.
