We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in International Politics explore the functions and structures of political systems and institutions across the international community.
Related subjects include Human Rights, International Relations and International Security. Entry requirements usually include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Politics, Intercultural Communication or Law.
Courses in this field encourage you to examine the structures and ideas that affect global affairs, and the roles which political institutions play in shaping sociocultural movements.
This could include an analysis of concepts like neo-imperialism and capitalism, and their impact on issues such as human rights. Or, you might look at how internationalism advocates for greater political or economic cooperation between nations and people.
You may also explore international institutions such as the European Union and the impact its function has on the countries that make up its membership, and how this in turn affects concepts of identity and nationality.
Traditional career routes in this field include international relations and foreign affairs for government departments and agencies. You might also consider administration, particularly for regulatory bodies and charities. Other careers include academia, publishing and journalism.
