International Relations (MA)
Why Study International Relations?
It is ever more important to understand how the world works. Few problems today can be easily confined to the domestic arena. A better knowledge of the world and international relations can help explain why problems – from terrorism to financial crises – occur and how best to resolve them.
Why Study International Relations at UEA?
In PSI, we pride ourselves on providing top quality teaching. Independent monitors have given us top marks for our teaching and we have consistently scored highly in student surveys too. We offer research-led teaching which means that your lecturers will be able to give the most up-to-date, cutting edge information on your subject of study. We think you will find it a stimulating environment to study. Many students come from Britain, of course, but many others come from all over the world. It will only help in your studies to meet and learn from people from all sorts of different cultures.
Courses, Content and Structure
The MA lasts twelve months for full-time students and two years for those studying part-time. You will have seminars and lectures during the first two semesters and then over the summer you will work on your dissertation which is handed in at the start of September.
Several of the MA programmes have Economic and Social Research Council (ERSC) recognition. This means that they meet national criteria for the training of social scientists. These skills are very valuable to a wide range of careers.
