About the course

Is there any concept of justice in relations between states? Do states remain the dominant actors in the international system with its current profusion of transnational corporations, international organisations, and regional blocs?

Our MA in International Relations is one of the foremost programmes in Britain and Europe for the study of international relations (IR). It will enable you to tackle the big issues facing global decision-makers, from war to poverty, from security to the complexities of environmental degradation, from inequality to the study of global elites.

Yeabsira Zewde

As an Ethiopian educated in the United States, coming to the UK and studying here was an intellectual adventure for me. When I came to Warwick to study International Relations MA, I was immersed in a diverse intellectual community, where I continued to broadened my horizon. The diversity here is to be celebrated as it makes Warwick what it is. We learn in an advanced, very high standard educational environment and we socialize in the variety of relaxing venues on campus and off campus; we've got the best of both worlds. The seminars by experts every week have been a great bonus to further our understanding on particular subject matters. For me it was such a privilege to study under the provision of great scholars such as Prof. Peter Burnell.

Among the many great memories I will have for many years to come is attending a class where all of us, about 15, are from 14 different countries. I appreciate Warwick for giving me the world in a classroom, to hear ideas, to interpret the world’s ill in different angle and learn to get rid of my box and think worldly. In our classroom, we all spoke the language of the world and I believe that political leaders of our days can learn something from us- if students from 14 different countries with different identities can sit around a table and agree on issues or the very least learn something from each other then why can’t they.
