Choose a Study Programme

The Institute offers disciplinary and interdisciplinary study programmes. This represents one of its unique selling points as the field of international studies is rarely approached in such a broad and comprehensive manner.

It is worth highlighting that even if students choose the first option, interdisciplinarity is encouraged. When studying for a Master, students are required to achieve a certain number of credits in a second discipline. PhD students have the option of writing their thesis in two disciplines, one as their “major” and the second as their “minor”. The diploma reflects the bi-disciplinary nature of their doctorate.

A fast track gives students, under certain conditions, the opportunity to complete their Master and PhD in five years instead of six.

The Graduate Institute also offers a dual degree programme  with the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
