Optional Courses

For the second semester, students choose four out of the optional courses below taught on the Bruges campus. These explore selected topics from the areas of security and justice, foreign economic relations, bi- and multilateral diplomacy, or professional skills in more detail and emphasise active student participation. In order to cover a broad range of issues within the EU’s external relations, while allowing for some specialisation, participants choose the four courses from at least three different thematic clusters.

Cluster 1: Security, Justice and Values

Cluster 2: Foreign Economic Relations and Sustainable Development

Cluster 3: Bi- and Multilateral Diplomacy

Cluster 4: Specific Professional Skills
