The Degree in International Relations at Rey Juan Carlos University has a study plan based on rigorous, quality criteria. This plan has been designed so that the student learns in detail how international relations are developed, what their main political and institutional assumptions are, in what way the international society is regulated, and what aspects have defined its historical evolution.
One fundamental virtue in the design of the study plan in this degree is its multidisciplinary character. Students will study questions relative to international relations from different and complementary perspectives that will permit them to become highly skilled: Law, History, Political Science, Economics, Sociology, Communication, and, of course, the concrete field of International Relations.
There is no specific restriction from what is required by the law that regulates access to higher education. However, it would be appropriate that the student has specialized in Social Sciences in high school, or else, if the student has had previous university studies, that those studies are related to branches of Law, Political Science, Administration, Economics, History, Communication and Sociology.
