Course summary

This is a very flexible MA programme that allows you maximum scope to construct a degree that suits your special interests. 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. The Brussels School of International Studies (BSIS) is a multidisciplinary postgraduate School of the University of Kent. We bring together the disciplines of politics, international relations, law and economics to provide in-depth analysis of international problems such as conflict, security, development, migration, the political economy and the legal basis of a changing world order. This programme aims to: provide a programme that will attract, and meet the needs of, those seeking advanced training in the discipline of international relations; provide you with a research-active learning environment which gives you a good grounding in the study of international relations, including its political, social, and economic aspects; examine how state, non-state and supra-national actors behave and interact through a dynamic appreciation of different levels of analysis; ensure that you acquire advanced knowledge of the theories of international relations, the heritage and development of the discipline, its major debates, its inherent nature as an interdisciplinary study, and a critical appreciation of the essentially contested nature of politics in general and international relations in particular; ensure that you acquire an advanced understanding of the relationship between the theoretical, methodological, and empirical content of the issue-areas studied; for the MA and MA (120 ECTS): develop your general research skills and personal skills (transferable skills), in particular through a substantial dissertation.
