The BA in International Relations and European Studies in English is an internationalized program, based on an interdisciplinary curriculum and compatibility with prominent universities across the European Union. The courses have a strong practical focus and include political science, history, economics, law, communication, project management etc., along with the study of at least one foreign language. Our students come not only from Romania, but also from many other EU and non-EU countries, which makes the learning environment multicultural, in keeping with the area of international relations. No fewer than 62 Erasmus Plus partnerships are attached to the exchange programs of this BA, accounting for a large number of incoming and outgoing students each year. Moreover, the double degree opportunities provided to our students with our partner universities from Nottingham and Padua enable the former to earn a degree from Babeş-Bolyai University and another from the British/Italian Ministry of Education. EU-funded projects, scientific conferences, NGO activities and national or international internships are just some of the appealing extracurriculars our students benefit from.
Enrolments to the Program are possible towards the fall, winter and spring semesters’ start each year. To learn about the possible Start Dates of the program for the academic year 2018, please click HERE.
