Course content

On this masters, you’ll study international relations theory and explore government structures from a global perspective.

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.

Aston is ranked 3rd in the UK for Area Studies research (REF 2014), so you know you will be learning from a team of international lecturers who are experts in their field. You’ll also benefit from active membership of the Aston Centre for Europe, a thriving research hub which organises debates, study visits, and conferences and seminars on current international issues.
