Duration: 1 year

Language: English

Degree awarded: MA International Relations

This programme offers students the opportunity to critically understand and engage with pressing issues in modern-day international relations. Students are encouraged to analyse and explore how ideas and the roles of institutions are being reconceptualised in our changing political climates, on an international and local level.

Transformations in political systems have resulted in new challenges to international governance, such as global inequality, democratic deficit, environmental degradation, and the changing nature of conflict. These current transformations require us to critically approach the study of international relations, through discussing the applicability of traditional theoretical approaches and institutional processes in a rapidly transforming world.

We provide our students with the theoretical and practical tools to develop their critical and creative thinking skills and thrive within a globalised economy.

  • Practical Application: Analyse and apply theoretical knowledge in the field of international relations through solving practical challenges in the contemporary political scene.
  • Global Governance: Interpret the principles of contemporary democracy in various socio-political and cultural contexts, developing an awareness of the key aspects of political, social, cultural and economic dynamics that contribute to effective and stable government.
  • Research Skills: Implement scientific research in the domain of political science.
  • Conflict Resolution: Recognise, describe and critically analyse specific kinds of socio-political conflicts and propose measures to overcome them.
  • Communication and Negotiation: Implement concrete actions in the field of strategic communications, political research, and campaigns.

With our MA in International Relations, you will have many different and exciting career opportunities.
