On the MA International Politics, you will learn from world-leading academics who are pushing the boundaries of the discipline to develop fresh perspectives and ideas. The MA in International Politics consolidates International Relations and Security Studies in masters programme. The core themes covered in this programme are: • International Relations • Global politics • Security studies • Sociological IR • Critical non-western and feminist perspectives
As well as deepening your understanding of mainstream approaches, you will be exposed to important new analytical insights such as sociological understandings of international relations, critical security studies, non-Western international relations, and intersectionality.
You will critically engage with the discipline to consider both the formal and informal power relationships within world politics, an awareness of the importance of cultural and social practices, and an ability to question some of the assumptions that have traditionally defined the discipline to the exclusion of important issues such as gender, race and class. As well as focusing on critical theoretical debates, students on the MA in International Politics will also explore the real world in all its complexity, and you will be able to choose from innovative modules that examine the most urgent issues in world politics.
