WELCOME TO SCHOOL OF STRATEGIC AND DEVELOPMENT STUDIES

This programme has been developed by Pioneer International University pursuant to curricular development and course diversification requirements of the CUE. The curriculum has been designed to offer students a heterogeneous approach in planning careers in international business, government service, Foreign Service, inter-governmental and non-governmental organizations. This program is enhanced with opportunities for co-curricular school trips, extra-curricular activities and internships both locally and internationally.

Bachelor of Art in International Relations (BAIR) is intended to be a premier program that will address not only the classical epistemological foundations of IR as a discipline within the realms of Political Science but will fundamentally look at the contemporary and emerging sub-fields in IR and themes that are relevant to the study of International Relations. Specifically, it will expose students to the contesting debates in International relations and the practical application in the various subfields of International Relations.
