Course content

The MA International Relations provides a substantial introduction to the main theoretical debates that shape the discipline and offers excellent preparation for undertaking a research degree.

International Relations is today, an exciting and important discipline of study. It addresses key issues associated with the way countries of the world co-exist in the face of rapid change. The 20th Century has witnessed two world wars and a forty-five year Cold War. It has seen huge technological changes that affect conflict, communications, trade and culture.

It has witnessed the mass movement of people and the growing sophistication of global economic networks. Addressing a wide range of issues, International Relations theorists are at the heart of debates that characterise early 21st Century academic discourse. Critical theorists, post-modernists and gender theorists, contrast with more traditional theorists of conflict, diplomacy and power politics.
