The School of Politics and International Relations is one of the most dynamic places to study Politics and International Relations. We combine high-quality teaching with cutting-edge research in a supportive environment that welcomes students from all over the world. All lectures and seminars on postgraduate modules are informed by the latest research and scholarship, and are delivered by full-time academic staff who have internationally recognised expertise in their field. The School has grown significantly in the last few years and now has over 30 academic staff based at two locations, in Canterbury and Brussels. The School is cosmopolitan, with staff originating from eight different countries, and well over half of all postgraduate students come from outside the UK.
Despite their close relationship, international law and international relations have traditionally been taught as discrete subjects. This programme is based on a recognition of the need to allow each discipline to be informed by the other, and covers the general methods, scope and theories of international relations and international law. The objective of the programme is to develop a critical consideration of traditional approaches to the discipline of international relations.
In post-Cold War globalisation, there is an increasingly apparent need for ever-more sophisticated ways of understanding the dramatic changes taking place. At the same time, this programme allows you to consider the role, potential and limitations of public international law in international affairs.
