Course content

This cutting-edge master’s course, delivered at Aston over one full academic year, will help you to get a broader perspective on issues of globalised governance and contemporary international relations alongside the opportunity to learn in an exciting multicultural environment.

Examine the governance of global problems, such as trade, health and the environment, and explore issues of national and multi-national governance through organisations such as the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and the World Health Organisation (WHO).

You will develop a wide-ranging skillset, including negotiation skills and public speaking, which will help to open doors when it comes to forging a career working for international organisations, governments and political institutions.

Depending on your interests and future career plans, the course provides the flexibility to choose from a wide range of elective modules, such as Critical approaches to Security studies, International Relations and Easy Asia, Changing China, and Concepts and Strategies for Social Data Analysis.

You can also specialise within different regions, including Europe or East Asia.
