Course content

If you feel like the world has taken a worrying turn, an MA in Diplomacy, Law and Global Change could set you on the path to changing it.

Are you interested in the nature of the world in which we live, the problems it confronts and how to respond to these problems?

This fascinating course explores the emerging global order of the 21st century from the perspectives of diplomacy and international law. Rapid change at both the domestic and international levels – globalization – transformed the policy environment and context in which both are constrained to operate.

You will have the opportunity to study the changing environment and challenges globalization presents, such as gender equality, climate change, modern slavery, terrorism and organised crime.

The course focuses on two sets of inter-related issues which are central to understanding this changing environment. Firstly, you will be encouraged to look at the role and nature of diplomacy as a key mode of communication between states and other actors on the international stage. Secondly, you will examine the development and adaptation of the norms and rules of international law, which have traditionally constituted the main sources of order in the international system. 

The course attracts students from across the globe, offering a multicultural learning experience drawing on the experience of students from diverse cultures, which will prepare you to work in an increasingly globalised job market.
