About the MSc programmes

The MSc International Relations is an advanced, academic study of the subject from a global perspective. You will have the opportunity to study a broad range of issues, including the formulation and implementation of foreign policy, relations between states and governments, international organisations and NGOs, and conflict and peace-making, and can choose to focus on specific regions, such as the Middle East, Asia and China.

The non-research track includes a compulsory course in International Politics, which provides an historical and theoretical analysis of core concepts in international relations, of the normative and analytic issues involved, and of their relationship to the social sciences in general. You will also submit a 10,000 word dissertation and choose optional courses to the value of two units.

The MSc International Relations (Research) is designed as a preparation for research work. The compulsory course, Theories of International Relations, covers the main explanatory and normative paradigms in international relations theory. Designed for students intending to proceed to a research degree and an academic career, it includes a course in social research methods. You will also submit a 10,000 word dissertation and choose optional courses to the value of one unit.

Graduate destinations

Most of our former MSc students go on to work in government, international organisations, financial institutions, journalism and corporations, but some continue on to research degrees and the academic profession.
