Course content

In the post-Cold War globalising world, there is an increasing need for more sophisticated ways of understanding the dramatic changes taking place. This course addresses that need. This is a very flexible MA programme that allows you maximum scope to construct a degree that suits your special interests.

Course structure

We are committed to offering flexible study options at the School and enable you to tailor your degree to meet your needs by offering start dates in September and January; full- and part-time study; split-site options, and allowing students to combine two fields of study leading to the award of a degree that reflects both disciplines.

The MA in International Relations allows students to choose secondary areas of specialisation from the range of programmes offered at BSIS. Thus, a focused programme of study can be constructed by studying International Relations in the context of International Law; International Conflict and Security; Political Strategy and Communication, and other subject areas we cover.

This leads to the award of an MA degree in, for example, 'International Relations with Political Strategy and Communication'.
