About this course
The MA in International Relations programme is innovative and challenging because it provides a multidisciplinary approach to examining international relations.
The programme will critically engage with theoretical approaches to International Relations in order to better understand the world. To further aid understanding of the world, the programme will critically examine in-depth issues of enduring international significance, including: conflict, the role of multilateral institutions, US foreign policy, state-building in the colonial and post-colonial world, and the role of humanitarian actions by state and non-state actors.
The programme will enable students to carry out original and independent research through developing research methodologies appropriate to the study of International Relations. The programme will provide networking opportunities to increase the opportunity of obtaining employment in a related field. It is why a series of fieldtrips and expert practitioner workshops will be held throughout the year, along with developing internship opportunities for students.
