International Relations Dual Degree


A double-accredited Dual Degree in collaboration with the University of Warsaw.

Studying International Relations provides a 360-degree view of the challenges shaping our global landscape and an immersive journey into the multifaceted world of global politics, economics, culture, and governance. Our ever-changing interconnected world is greatly impacted by this unique study topic, which provides a comprehensive understanding of the intricate interplay between nations, economies, and societies.

The University of Haifa’s School of Political Sciences in collaboration with the Institute of International Relations at the University of Warsaw, offers a unique opportunity to acquire a double-accredited degree in International Relations. Our students spend two study semesters at each institution respectively, focusing on international collaborative diplomatic mechanisms, challenges and solutions, and produce a written thesis supervised by one lecturer from Haifa and one from Warsaw.


Our program aims to:

  • Provide students with new insights, concepts, and analytical tools to understand and address complex challenges and functions of diplomacy in an international setting.
  • Train students to generate effective solutions for a wide range of contemporary political, cultural, and economic issues.
  • Offer students broad international experience both in the Middle East and in Europe.
Two Degrees, Two Years:

Our 2-year international master’s program is taught in English. The first year is taught in Haifa and the second in Warsaw. Upon completion of the program, students will be awarded a Master of Arts (MA) in International Relations from the University of Haifa and Magister in International Relations from the University of Warsaw.
