Format: Campus

Program Description:

Aims of the course International Relations focuses on contemporary international relations and the understanding of overall global dynamics. Its interdisciplinary approach links the study of international politics, international political economy and international public law. International change is also emphasised through the course. The MA, with a current intake of around 100 students a year, draws people from all over the world and from many different backgrounds. The course aims to equip you for analytical research on contemporary structures, processes and factors in international and transnational relations. It is ideal for those whose career plans will involve dealing with international affairs but who lack an academic background in the field. Particularly valuable for those students interested in policy issues, this MA International Relations course provides the opportunity to undertake a work placement in an organisation concerned with international affairs. The vocational nature of the course is further enhanced by the dissertation, which allows you to engage in a substantial piece of research and to apply your knowledge and skills in an area of particular interest to you and your career aspirations. Career opportunities This is a valuable course for those planning careers as diplomats, journalists, and officials in international organisations, and also for those with career paths in the voluntary and private sectors. Those working for government departments have found the MA a useful route to enhanced promotion or a move into foreign office work. Students wishing to move into international relations-related work or change careers have also benefited from the course. Some of our graduates have also gone on to teach international relations or onto further academic study.
