About International Relations: Politics and History (IRPH) at Jacobs University Bremen

The problems and threats facing the world today are complex. Navigating the international political arena and creating sustainable solutions require both a nuanced and multi-faceted approach. Thus, the International Relations: Politics and History (IRPH) program teaches students concepts and methods from a number of fields, including political science, history, law, and philosophy. The overall aim is twofold: first, to equip students with the theoretical knowledge and analytical skills required to explore the historical emergence of, and remedies for, pressing global ills. And, second, to prepare our students so they can succeed either on the job market or in graduate school.

Upon graduating, about 60% of our students enter prestigious graduate schools, such as Oxford, Cambridge, London School of Economics (LSE), Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Georgetown, and Sciences Po. About 40% of our graduates opt for the job market and secure positions in traditional international relations fields, public policy, or development work as well as in the business sector, consulting, and in many other areas. The success of our students attests to the excellence of the IRPH program, which is also confirmed by the program's outstanding rankings from the Centre for Higher Education (CHE).

    Testimonial from Emilia from Germany (Integrated Social Sciences, now Society, Media, and Politics '21), student at Jacobs University Bremen

    Bremen is my home town and the city I spend 17 years living and growing from and with it. Studying at Jacobs gave me the chance to show friends from all over the world beautiful places in Bremen and their surroundings they have never seen before. From my own experiences, I enjoyed, in my 2 years of traveling after high school, the contact with locals, and the authenticity you get to explore. Jacobs is the perfect place to meet open-minded people that are aiming memories you will never forget.
