Globalisation and recent wars dramatise the enduring importance of world affairs to government, economics and people’s lives. If you are interested in a career focusing on global politics, this programme is for you. It is aimed at degree-holders with an interest in the theory and practice of world politics.

The degree aims to impart a broad and balanced knowledge of international relations theory at an advanced level. It provides core training in political analysis and methodology of the social sciences; examines contemporary global problems and rival approaches to their solution; and offers specialisation in particular areas such as foreign policy analysis, global society, regional integration, global environmental politics, and strategic and security studies.
