preparation for a career in a range of international institutions, diplomacy or security

can be done either through attendance or through distance learning

What it's about
The MA International Relations offers a strong theory orientation with the aim of providing a programme capable of standing at the core of the current discipline. It provides a substantial introduction to the main theoretical debates that shape the discipline and offers excellent preparation for undertaking a research degree. International Relations is today, an exciting and important discipline of study. It addresses key issues associated with the way countries of the world co-exist in the face of rapid change. The 20th Century has witnessed two world wars and a forty-five year Cold War. It has seen huge technological changes that affect conflict, communications, trade and culture. It has witnessed the mass movement of people and the growing sophistication of global economic networks. Addressing a wide range of issues, International Relations theorists are at the heart of debates that characterise early 21st Century academic discourse. Critical theorists, post-modernists and gender theorists, contrast with more traditional theorists of conflict, diplomacy and power politics.

What you do
The distance learning version of the MA is focused on the same learning outcomes as the programme, followed by attendance. The same core modules are offered but using a different teaching and learning strategy. Options are also available. The distance learning MA will use the Blackboard virtual learning system which is very interactive. You will be able to interact through discussion groups, directly with tutors, undertake specified exercises, including research exercises and work on and submit analytical essays - all using internet linkages. Part of the learning method will be to encourage group work between students, who will link via the internet. Support materials will be provided including an extensive reading package to support the on-line material.

Where next
The award will equip you with practical and academic skills attractive to employers. These include independent judgement, self-reflection and critical debate. You may choose to use the specialist knowledge you acquire, to work in one of the many international institutions, national foreign or defence ministries or internationally oriented organisations of many sorts. Alternatively you may wish to continue with an academic career.

Reply from Find A Masters Team Dear Sir, I have done 3 semesters of my MA course in JNU, New Delhi India, but I can not be here in India to continue for my 4th semester, so is this possible to transfer my 48 credits to you institution and get my degree by completing degree credits?
