Course summary

Overview

Explore international relations in theory and practice: our PhD programme will support you in discovering and creating new knowledge about global politics and international relations.

Our PhD research programme will allow you to explore your own interests in international relations and international politics, supported by the expertise of our staff.

You'll be allocated two supervisors, with additional staff members available if necessary. Our supervisors are experienced in most areas of international relations, with strengths in international political theory, security studies, military studies, development, political philosophy, human rights and (counter) terrorism studies. The International Relations degree also links in closely with Criminology at Anglia Ruskin, so that you can benefit from a rich and broad environment for specialised research.

Careers

We’ll provide you with many opportunities for career development and training, in areas like writing up a paper for publication, placing an academic article, giving a conference paper, the doctoral writing style, updates on research methods and literature searches, internet training, editing skills for doctoral research, subsequent monograph publication and working with agents and publishers. You might also be able to take on teaching responsibilities within the department or organise research events.

In conjunction with the University’s research support, you can request specific support for writing-up, conference papers, general research methods and other research skills if you need it.
