Course summary

Why choose this course

International organisations, humanitarian agencies, and states, all intervene in the sovereign affairs of nation-states. But when might such intervention be justified, and how can it be made most effective?

Hosted in our Centre for International Intervention, our International Relations (International Intervention) MSc draws upon our staff's decades of experience in the diplomatic and humanitarian sectors. Crisis management and negotiation simulations enable you to apply the conceptual challenges presented by intervention in practical contexts.

With the option of a Professional Training placement, the International Intervention pathway will enable you to tackle the ethical, legal and political challenges posed by international intervention.

What you will study

On our International Interventions pathway you will engage critical debates on the nature of international intervention. Discussion-seminar and simulation-based learning is animated by issues of state sovereignty, human rights, and the responsibility to protect people from atrocities.

You will study modules covering the latest research on international intervention and post-conflict processes, uniquely co-taught by experienced practitioners alongside the Centre for International Intervention’s academic experts.

Careers and graduate prospects

We offer careers information, advice and guidance to all students whilst studying with us, which is extended to our alumni for three years after leaving the University.

Whatever your plans are, our MSc in International Relations (International Intervention) is a great stepping stone in your career development.
