We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in International Relations explore the interactions between members of the international community.
Related postgraduate specialisms include International Politics, International Law and Diplomacy. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate field such as Intercultural Communication or Politics.
Courses in this field are typically interdisciplinary, exploring the actions of state and non-state entities at an international level. You can expect to examine cultural, historical, economic, geographical, social, legal and humanitarian aspects of the interactions between countries and organisations, as well as political ones.
You will study international relations theory with regards to issues such as economic policy, international public law, foreign policy formulation and environment policy, and how different regions address humanitarian issues.
This may include investigating topics such as security and governance, war and conflict, gender issues, identity, multiculturalism and geopolitics. For example, you might assess how international institutions such as the European Union influence the foreign affairs of the Western world.
Careers in this field are highly varied, from local governance and foreign affairs, to international development, human rights advocacy, global communications, international business and journalism.
If academia is of interest to you, a Masters in International Relations would provide ideal preparation for further research at PhD level.
