Preferably this degree has been obtained in Political Sciences, Humanities, or Social Sciences, including Law and Economics. However, it isn?t necessary that the degree be in a international relations (IR)-related field. In fact, the certificate program is perfect for those who have a non-IR-related bachelor?s degree, but who are looking to add to their understanding of IR and principles in general, and the Middle East Studies concepts and practices in particular.
