Course content

Liverpool Hope University’s MA International Relations encompasses a number of the most important issues in the modern world including global politics and policy, globalisation, trade, social and economic development, integration, interdependence, war and peace, conflict resolution and peace-keeping, international justice and human rights, gender issues, environmentalism and climate change.

The MA International Relations is built around a strong core of international politics, but also draws on other disciplines such as history, economics, sociology, development and cultural studies. The objective is to encourage you to engage critically with both the theoretical and practical dimensions of contemporary global politics. You will develop your ability to understand and interpret the modern world through a combination of theoretical insights with detailed practical analyses.
The MA International Relations is suitable to both recent graduates and those wishing to return to study, who have an interest in global politics and the nature of international and transnational relations. The programme attracts students from across the world and from many different backgrounds.

Programme Overview

The MA International Relations combines academic and practical modules, consisting two compulsory courses, up to five elective courses, and a dissertation (final research project) totaling 180 credits. Assessment methods may include coursework, in-class tests, examinations, presentations, a research proposal and research dissertation.
