What is the Dual Degree in International Relations and Bachelor's Degree in Global Communication?

In this era of globalization, the Bachelor's Degree in International Relations – Bachelor's Degree in Global Communication (RRII-COM) will provide you with a broad base to successfully carry out professional activities in areas such as Diplomacy, International Political Management, Strategic Communication and sections in Transnational Companies.

Around 80% of the teaching in the Dual Degree in International Relations and Bachelor's Degree in Global Communication is carried out in English, but this degree goes further, and offers a complete multilingual experience, in which you will also be trained in two other global languages (French, German, Arabic, Portuguese or Chinese). You will study for the third year of your education abroad - in one of the most prestigious universities in the world - and you will have the option of carrying out a second international period of exchange for six months. During the summer months between the third and fourth year of studies, you will spend one month in Brussels, in order to get to know, in detail, the functioning of European Union institutions. All of this comes with a perfect combination of knowledge and skills (soft skills), and a high component of external internships, fully orientated to the needs of the global labor market.

These studies combine knowledge, 'soft skills' and four international languages.

In addition, to provide you with a competitive advantage, in the last two years of your studies you will broaden your training and strengthen your employability by choosing one of the three Official Options for Specialization in the field of International Relations offered by these studies as a differentiating feature (Economics and Business, Law and Diplomacy, or Foreign Policy and International Security).
