LCC can provide the education that students need to take part in International Relations and Development. We have a carefully designed curriculum intended to prepare graduates for both the theoretical, academic side of the discipline and the practical skills sought by employers. Assignments are designed to make students fluent in various formats of written English, including both academic and government writing styles, as well as spoken English. We place an emphasis on the promotion of civil society because of its importance for the social and democratic development of states. The international nature of the school will prepare students to work in an increasingly integrated environment.
A graduate in International Relations and Development is prepared for further studies in political science subfields and related social science programs, eg. political science, international relations, political economy, comparative politics, regional studies and international development, public policy, administration and/or management of public and non-governmental organizations. They may also pursue studies in some interdisciplinary graduate studies, e.g. global studies, also in humanities. A graduate may seek employment in public institutions, political organizations, diplomatic missions, local and international non-governmental organizations, their coalitions and confederations, international cooperation organizations and research institutes, humanitarian and international aid providers and agencies, the departments of public sector organizations coordinating development cooperation activities, human rights organizations, social and corporate responsibility departments in the business sector. Depending on the type of organization and activities, graduates, for instance can work as analysts, commentators, coordinators, managers and/or project leaders.
