Diploma International Relations from a Spanish Perspective
Description and Objectives
The Diploma in International Relations from a Spanish Perspective is offered by the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at Universidad Pontificia Comillas. Its aim is to offer training in International Relations from a European perspective, and especially from a Spanish viewpoint. It is, therefore, of special interest for international exchange students who come to Comillas to follow studies in International Relations or other related areas of study. Students studying toward this diploma will learn to see International Relations as a multi-faceted field in which the perspective of the analysts or actors must be taken into account. Spain is clearly an international participant of increasing relevance and carries out an important role in the development of European Foreign Policy. Studying the events and their development in the global area in political, economic, social , legal and cultural aspects from a Spanish perspective will undoubtedly provide added value to the education of students from other European countries, and especially to those from America, Asia or Australia.
