International Relations MA

Course Description

In our increasingly global marketplace and society, the need for different nations and peoples to co-exist presents both challenges and opportunities. By understanding the potential tensions and parallels, you give yourself a greater chance of thriving in this international arena. For future-thinking students with an eye on a career in diplomacy or business, an MA in International Relations from Middlesex is an important stepping-stone.

Why study MA International relations at Middlesex?

Taught in the evenings, over one year or two (part-time), the course is ideal for students who work in London and want to broaden their skill set. The course has the circumstantial advantage of attracting students from all across the world, which provides a natural environment for sharing national perspectives and cultural beliefs.

An example of the dynamism in this course came during the recent Syrian crisis, as the world waited to see how the major powers would react to the allegations of chemical weapons employed by President Assad's regime. Students were invited to present their own viewpoints during a seminar around the question: should the world respect Syria's sovereignty or does it have a duty to protect vulnerable citizens? The range of responses highlighted the strength of feeling around the world at the time.

Course highlights:

- Classes are from 6.30 to 9pm on Wednesdays and/or Thursdays for two terms (full-time) or four terms (part-time)
- Based 20 minutes from central London, allowing students to study and work in the Capital. Academics lead field trips to important organisations within London e.g. International Maritime Organisation
- Intake in October and January, which is often more suitable for students from Pakistan and India.
- Broad international student body that provides a natural environment for insight and discussion.
- The opportunity to take the Practicum in International Organisations, which gives you the chance to intern at institutions such as the United Nations, Global Union Federations and NGOs.
- As a student of this course you'll receive a free electronic textbook for every module.
