The MA International Relations equips you with the theoretical and empirical research tools to understand the forces that shape global politics. A postgraduate degree in International Relations is a pathway to a range of careers, from NGOs to International Organisations such as the EU. Our teaching methods are innovative and working with a group of world-leading researchers will ensure your degree is cutting edge and highly sought after.

Flexibility to follow your interests with world-leading researchers

To understand something as complex as the contemporary world order, theory is invaluable. This foundation will be a benchmark and guide to investigating the complex security and public policy issues of the 21st century. These include:

* Terrorism
* Global resistance movements
* The politics of the Middle East
* US foreign policy
* Global ethics and human rights
* International law and governance
* International political theory

There is considerable scope to study specific topics of interest to you alongside world-leading researchers in their field. Your learning will be led by staff associated with the Centre for Advanced International Studies, who have contributed to contemporary public debates through newspaper articles, television appearances and through social media.

Innovative teaching

Teaching in the department is research-led, ensuring that what you learn will be cutting edge and at the heart of contemporary public debate. This will be broadly seminar-based, giving you the chance to debate the ideas and policies that are shaping the world around us with high-achieving students and experts in the field. Content is delivered through a range of innovative teaching methods, including:

* Debates
* Role-plays and simulations
* Field trips
* Graduate-level conferences

You will benefit from a dedicated personal tutor and have the time and freedom to direct your own learning to meet the requirements of the modules.

Extra-curricular events

Extra-curricular events, like stand-alone talks given by policy makers, activists and scholars, are hugely beneficial to giving added perspective of contemporary world politics. Recent contributors have included:

* Aid workers from conflict and post conflict zones
* Ex-special forces soldier who served in Afghanistan
* David Miliband
* The Head of the Islamic Revival Party of Tajikistan
* The Head of MI6
* BBC journalist now turned documentary-maker.

Our active student societies also regularly organise events, such as trips to Brussels to visit NATO and European Union institutions.

Developing your career

While this is a challenging degree, which attracts students hoping to go on to PhD research, International Relations is also a highly sought after postgraduate degree for a range of professions other than academia. The MA in International Relations gives you a global perspective on contemporary politics, trains you to express yourself clearly and persuasively and will develop you into an independent and critical thinker. These skills are highly sought after, particularly in:

* Government
* Non-governmental organisations
* Aid agencies and pressure groups
* Law and finance
* Publishing and the media
* International organisations like the European Union and the United Nations
* Academia

The MA in Modern History can be studied following one of five strands:

British Intelligence History
This strand explores the history of intelligence in the 20th century through the medium of the British intelligence community, particularly, though not exclusively, the Secret Intelligence Service (popularly known as MI6). The pathway convenor is Professor Keith Jeffery who has recently completed the official history of SIS.

Religion, Identity and Conflict in History [new for 2012]
This strand explores the role played by religion in various forms and modes of historical conflict and identity, from the rise of Reformation to the global age, in Europe and the World. It looks at how religious convictions have intersected and interacted with the historical dynamic, how it fostered social, cultural, and political discord as well as acted as a mediator and a mitigator for peace.

British History
This strand focuses on British history from the mid-nineteenth century to the late twentieth century. It provides an introduction to the latest historiography being employed in political history, cultural and social history and examines domestic British history and the nation’s relationship with the wider world.

American History
This strand focuses on the history of the United States, and especially the American South, in the last two centuries.

Medieval and Early Modern History
This strand gives students the opportunity to explore medieval and early modern history in depth, drawing on the wide range of expertise of staff within the School.
