Course content

The MSc in International Relations provides a rigorous grounding in the study of international relations, politics, and development. It will equip you with the knowledge of methodologies appropriate to such study.

Drawing on a range of different disciplinary approaches – from Political Science, International Relations, Area Studies, and Economic and Social History – the MSc in International Relations will survey the major contemporary challenges in world politics. In particular, it will focus on relations between state and non-state actors in the context of a globalized and interdependent world.

The programme will also provide research training that will encompass both research skills and methodologies.

The programme will conclude with a dissertation. This focused piece of work will permit you to develop your own ideas and demonstrate your capacity for original thought; while also building on the themes and issues covered in the full range of courses.

The programme provides you with:

  • a comprehensive programme of study reflecting a broad picture of global politics in the 21st century.
  • opportunities to reflect on theoretical and conceptual approaches to global politics
  • knowledge of a range of relevant disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches to the study of world politics derived from the social sciences and humanities.
