École supérieure d’études internationales

HEI is Québec’s first and one of Canada’s five largest reputed educational academies for international studies.

With the support of some 70 members, over a dozen research groups, and a number of partners, it has been an exceptional training ground for international expertise and knowledge since 1994.

HEI offers a world-class interdisciplinary master’s program in international studies.

The master’s program includes four fields of study: international relations, international development, international trade and investment, and international security. We have shaped an entire generation of Canadian and foreign internationalists (over 600 alumni to date).

The French-language PhD program in international studies is the only one of its kind in Canada.

Our interdisciplinary doctoral program produces experts well versed in international realities, e.g., experts who apply their understanding of geography and law to water issues.

Our top-notch research centres and chairs advance knowledge in major international issues.

Our expertise covers security, human rights, trade, the environment, geopolitics, natural resources, and development across the globe—in North and South America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.

We organize some 60 scientific activities a year around international topics.

Events include symposia, lectures, round tables, and our international summer schools on highly critical and topical international issues. Terrorism, food security, conflict and intervention, and natural resources are the themes for the 2014 and 2015 summer schools.
