Overview

With the global demand for development specialists, the International Politics and Development Studies program, being one of the rare BA level programs of its kind in Europe (and practically sole in Eastern Europe) is unique in that it, in addition to providing classical Political Science education, lays fundamentals of development and international relations theories and practice, all this with a focus on one of the developing regions. Currently, the Program covers the Middle East and former Soviet Union but is foreseen to expand to include East Asia and Latin America. In connection with this, students are given the opportunity to study one of the area languages (such as Arabic, French, Turkish and Russian) for four semesters. During their studies, students are required to do internship at relevant institutions, something that enhances their practical skills and ability to put theory into practice.
As the program is physically set in Lithuania, through its teaching staff as well as students it ingeniously combines the Western European expertise and Eastern European experiences.

Career opportunities

Graduates of the International Politics and Development Studies program will be able to work as either analysts, political advisors, or project managers in:
• EU, UN and other international organizations and institutions;
• national public sector institutions;
• national and international non-governmental organizations;
• media and other public information agencies,
• research centers, think tanks, public opinion and political research institutions.

Alternatively, they may further pursue their studies in more specialized Master’s programs in political science and other social sciences or humanities.
