This course offers fresh insights by familiarising students with the latest developments in the field and equipping students with an understanding of International Relations through the analysis of relevant contemporary international problems.
The core modules enable you to examine the theories and concepts of International Relations and provide context for research concerns focused on this fascinating discipline. You will gain an understanding of the historical and theoretical contexts of International Relations to enable you to address the demands posed by global problems.
Your dissertation will be supervised and guided by staff but it is a student-centred piece of independent work. Topics may be drawn from the areas covered in your module selection, or aligned to your personal experience, and your tutors will support you with the development of your research question. The MA International Relations degree allows you to specialise in your course of study through optional modules including Concepts in International Studies, Security Governance, Terrorism in the 21st Century or Diplomacy, or through pathway routes.
You can choose a specialist pathway in Intelligence, Contemporary China or Russian Studies. If you opt for the pathway route, your award title will reflect this.
The fees for this programme of study are £4,950.
