Course content

Collaboratively delivered with the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion (PPR) and the Law School, this programme has three core taught modules, which examine different aspects of diplomacy, foreign policy, and international law, providing a strong introduction to the field.

Teaching draws upon distinguished practitioners with experience in the field and may include student trips to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London, European Union organisations in Brussels and international organisations in Geneva.

A student is awarded either an LLM or an MA degree dependent on the weighting of law and politics courses studied. A major factor will be the department responsible for the supervision of the final dissertation.
