Presentation: Bachelor Degree in International Relations & Diplomacy
Schiller International University's Bachelor Degree in International Relations and Diplomacy offers students aninternational curriculum that encompasses scientific technological, cultural and humanitarian concerns, as well as the more traditional areas of diplomatic activities.
Schiller International University students initially pursue courses in the liberal arts, in order to give them a thorough foundation inhistory, economics, political science, and international relations. In their final two years of study, students will go on to apply their analytical skills to case studies, debates, and on-site visits.
Schiller provides interesting options for students interested in an international education and studying in Paris or other cosmopolitan cities. The flexible feature of our University's academic model is that it operates on a four-month semester system. Within 1 semester students complete 4 courses, the duration of each course being one month. Undergraduate students are required to complete 40 courses (120 credits) in order to obtain a Bachelor´s Degree.
Students enroll for 4 month sessions. During these sessions, students study 4 courses and obtain 12 credits. Students of high academic standing may be allowed to take additional classes, but most students complete12 credits every 4 months. Students decide whether to take a break or to enroll immediately for the next 4 month session. Each student decides how fast he/she wants to complete the degree.
So while students register and pay for the semester, this structure allows students to begin their course of study at Schiller at any given month during an academic year. Students don't need to delay their educational goals or wait for a traditional ‘September intake' to begin at Schiller. Since we operate on a monthly system, we have monthly intakes and there are no Deadlines for Admission.
