International Relations MA


Course Description

This course focuses on international relations today and on providing an understanding of global dynamics. It offers a broad range of modules including a work placement opportunity, with subject areas encompassing international relations theory, international politics and international public law.

About the course

The International Relations MA aims to equip you for analytical research on contemporary structures, processes and factors in international relations. It's ideal for those whose career plans involve dealing with international affairs but who lack an academic background in the field.

The course is taught through a combination of lectures and seminars, and there's a heavy emphasis on discussion and presentation.

If you're interested in policy issues, the vocational nature of the course is further enhanced by the dissertation; this allows you to engage in a substantial piece of research and to apply your knowledge and skills in an area of particular interest to you and your career aspirations.

Assessment

Assessment varies from module to module but typically encompasses a combination of essays, project work, oral presentations and unseen examinations. The dissertation element forms a third of the overall assessment weighting.

Modular structure

The course is divided into six modules, some compulsory and other that allow you to develop your preferred subject areas.

Core modules:

Theory and Research in International Relations
The Evolution of the Modern Inter-state System
International Relations and the Legal Regulation of Conflict
Optional modules include:

Religion in International Relations
Human Security
Security Studies
International Conflict Resolution
The New Europe in the New International System
Finally, you're required to produce a dissertation of 15,000 words to be submitted at the end of the course. This forms a central component of the degree. You're invited to propose a topic for detailed independent research before working with staff to develop your ideas into a coherent and feasible research proposal.

After the course
Students who have taken this course have progressed to an array of careers ranging from the public sector, through NGOs to international companies. The course has proven particularly beneficial for those who are seeking work in organisations operating in a transnational environment.
