Master of Arts in International Relations and Conflict Resolution
The Master of Arts in International Relations and Conflict Resolution degree from American Military University provides the student with an opportunity to research, study, and write in the field of international relations and conflict resolution. The approach to International Relations is that this field of study is firmly embedded in the Social Sciences as a whole. The rapid pace of globalization is blurring the boundaries of the state. Traditionally, state borders used to regulate the flows of things "foreign" into the state. Today borders are becoming ever more permeable to the transnational flows of goods, finance, ideas, communications, images, and crime and terrorism. Traditional thinking is also that state borders define the boundaries of a political community implying that domestic politics is qualitatively "different" than international politics. Because of that, the discipline of International Relations is increasingly connected with insights from sociology, political economy, psychology, anthropology, and international law.
