Course content

The MLitt in International Political Theory provides students with a dynamic and systematic understanding of how political theory can be brought to bear on international politics and world affairs. It is not a general international relations or international relations theory programme but a specialised programme in political thought.

This is a one-year taught postgraduate programme run by the School of International Relations.

Highlights

  • Offers a uniquely deep focus on both the history of political thought and contemporary political theory.
  • Distinctive approach, different from that of traditional programmes in International Relations or International Relations Theories.
  • Ideal for further academic work leading to a PhD at St Andrews or elsewhere.
  • Prepares students for a wide range of professional fields including law, policy research and consultancy, NGOs, charities, international organisations, civil service and publishing.
