The MA International Relations equips you with the theoretical and empirical research tools to understand the forces that shape global politics. A postgraduate degree in International Relations is a pathway to a range of careers, from NGOs to International Organisations such as the EU. Our teaching methods are innovative and working with a group of world-leading researchers will ensure your degree is cutting edge and highly sought after.

Flexibility to follow your interests with world-leading researchers

To understand something as complex as the contemporary world order, theory is invaluable. This foundation will be a benchmark and guide to investigating the complex security and public policy issues of the 21st century. These include:

* Terrorism
* Global resistance movements
* The politics of the Middle East
* US foreign policy
* Global ethics and human rights
* International law and governance
* International political theory

There is considerable scope to study specific topics of interest to you alongside world-leading researchers in their field. Your learning will be led by staff associated with the Centre for Advanced International Studies, who have contributed to contemporary public debates through newspaper articles, television appearances and through social media.

Innovative teaching

Teaching in the department is research-led, ensuring that what you learn will be cutting edge and at the heart of contemporary public debate. This will be broadly seminar-based, giving you the chance to debate the ideas and policies that are shaping the world around us with high-achieving students and experts in the field. Content is delivered through a range of innovative teaching methods, including:

* Debates
* Role-plays and simulations
* Field trips
* Graduate-level conferences

You will benefit from a dedicated personal tutor and have the time and freedom to direct your own learning to meet the requirements of the modules.

Extra-curricular events

Extra-curricular events, like stand-alone talks given by policy makers, activists and scholars, are hugely beneficial to giving added perspective of contemporary world politics. Recent contributors have included:

* Aid workers from conflict and post conflict zones
* Ex-special forces soldier who served in Afghanistan
* David Miliband
* The Head of the Islamic Revival Party of Tajikistan
* The Head of MI6
* BBC journalist now turned documentary-maker.

Our active student societies also regularly organise events, such as trips to Brussels to visit NATO and European Union institutions.

Developing your career

While this is a challenging degree, which attracts students hoping to go on to PhD research, International Relations is also a highly sought after postgraduate degree for a range of professions other than academia. The MA in International Relations gives you a global perspective on contemporary politics, trains you to express yourself clearly and persuasively and will develop you into an independent and critical thinker. These skills are highly sought after, particularly in:

* Government
* Non-governmental organisations
* Aid agencies and pressure groups
* Law and finance
* Publishing and the media
* International organisations like the European Union and the United Nations
* Academia

The MA by Research in Strategy and Security has been developed to allow you to undertake a research project in an area that interests you within a shorter timeframe than a MPhil or PhD.

The award of an MA by Research will provide clear evidence to employers, whether academic or professional, of your ability to conduct independent research and to produce original material within a prescribed timescale. It is ideal both for those who want to pursue careers with a significant research element and for those already in such forms of employment who are interested in pursuing a specific shorter-term research project without taking a career break.

The MA by Research is intended both as an award in its own right or as a progression route to a PhD and successful students have the option to transfer to an MPhil or PhD on completion. If you are interested in converting to an MPhil or PhD at a later stage, the MA by Research is also sufficiently flexible to allow you to do so.

As there is no taught element to the MA, students can complete their research projects via distance learning. Regular supervision and advice will be made available to all students undertaking the MA but distance needs will be accommodated by web-based communication as well as face-to-face supervision. As members of the Strategy and Security Institute, students on the MA by Research will also be offered opportunities to attend some of our key events at no additional cost. These will include our annual RUSI-based policy workshop and Crisis Watch Conference.

A Masters by Research degree is assessed by a written dissertation of up to 40,000 words. Your dissertation will not need to constitute an original contribution to knowledge but it will need to provide evidence that you have worked at the current limits of understanding of the subject. There is no taught element, so dedication and enthusiasm for your subject are essential. As with other research students, you may be required to sit in on all or parts of certain modules though. This will follow an initial analysis of your training needs and proposed topic.

Full support for your project will be offered to you throughout. You will be supervised in preparing your thesis by a member of staff with expertise appropriate to your chosen area of study, and, by prior agreement you’ll be provided with access to one of the SSI's honorary fellowship network.

This Masters programme is designed for graduates with no prior knowledge of Islam as well as those who would like to develop their understanding of this major world faith.Our programme will enable you to acquire a profound comprehension of Islam both as a religious, intellectual and cultural tradition, and as a powerful political ideology.

You will study materials which delineate the core values and doctrines of Islam, and those which elaborate on the diversity of practice and manifold traditions of the Islamic faith. Your ability to analyse materials, contexts and issues - and to engage in informed academic discussion on your conclusions - will be strengthened through the study of methodologies and research tools used today in Islamic Studies by historians, social scientists and cultural anthropologists.

This combination of approaches to the study of Islam will enable you to acquire the analytical tools needed for independent study and interpretation of both medieval and contemporary aspects of Islam, not only within the context of the Middle East, but throughout the world.

Research

Research in the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies (IAIS) is divided into disciplinary research clusters.

The Islamic Studies cluster(http://socialsciences.exeter.ac.uk/iais/research/clusters/islamicstudies/) includes postgraduate students and staff brought together by a common fascination with the theological, ethical and legal traditions of Islam. They gather under the auspices of the Centre for the Study of Islam(http://socialsciences.exeter.ac.uk/iais/research/centres/csi/), which holds regular study groups, seminars and conferences. The principal project linked to this research group is Islamic Reformulations: Belief, Governance, Violence, funded by the ESRC under the RCUK Global Uncertainties Programme. The project examines the current state and future trajectories of Muslim thought.

Our research newsletter will also give you a flavour of our research (http://socialsciences.exeter.ac.uk/iais/research/researchnewsletter/).
