Program Description:

The MA in International Studies introduces you to the key debates in the discipline of International Relations and to offer an opportunity to reflect on issues of critical importance in today's world. It has been said that the world has never been smaller, or more complex, and so global issues manifestly bear directly on all walks of life in all societies.

The course will provide you with in-depth knowledge of contemporary International Relations, together with a range of academic and transferable skills. These include an appreciation of the associated literature and a practical knowledge of regional problems and challenges to global stability. You may specialise in a range of options; we have particular strength in issues of global security, global governance, development, gender, human rights, nationalism and an array of experts teaching on specific regions such as Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, Europe and Russia.
