Overview

Almost all aspects of life – economic, social, cultural and political – are influenced by players beyond the borders of national states.

If you want the skills to understand this dynamic international order and you’re interested in the relations between countries, this MA International Relations Master’s degree course gives you the platform to address some of the most contentious subjects in international affairs.

You’ll study key topics across the spectrum of international relations and examine theories and historical inquiry. This will equip you with the tools to challenge conventional explanations and develop arguments of your own. You’ll develop advanced analytic skills and critical assessment abilities, and learn to write engaging reports, policy briefs and essays.

When you graduate, you’ll be in a strong position to generate creative solutions that benefit the global economy and international society.

You’ll be suited for roles in security, development, social policy, governance, advocacy and communications. Previous graduates have gone on to work in parliaments, political parties, third sector and civil society organisations.
