Course content

This version of the International Relations programme offers the opportunity to study at the prestigious Higher School of Economics in Moscow and obtain two Master's degrees. You spend the first year at Kent and the second year in Moscow. Courses in Moscow are taught in English with the option to take Russian language courses (at an additional cost).

The MA in International Relations considers contemporary questions in International Relations theory and practice. The accent is on critical consideration of traditional approaches to the discipline. In the post-Cold War globalising world there is an increasingly apparent need for ever-more sophisticated ways of understanding the dramatic changes taking place. This programme addresses that need.

The programme provides you with advanced training, by way of coursework and dissertation, in the general methods, scope, theories, and findings in the field of International Relations. It builds on an undergraduate specialisation in the field of International Relations or a similar discipline; it gives a systematic preparation for original postgraduate research or for a demanding international career; and it constitutes a programme of training for those who have graduated in other fields and wish to transfer to International Relations.
