This fascinating programme takes an expanded definition of International Relations and covers a range of subjects from economics, politics, law and culture to examining the actions of international organisations, nation-states and non-state actors. 

It provides you with an essential grounding in international relations theory and also provides a range of specialist modules which examine in depth issues of enduring international significance: conflict, US foreign policy, state-building in the colonial and post-colonial world, and the role of humanitarian actions by state and non-state actors.

In addition to the cross-Faculty taught aspects of the MA, the programme recognises the importance of networking by obtaining employment in a related field. We will provide an internship programme and hold and attend regular events and workshops with experts.
