Course summary

Gain a thorough understanding of International Relations and be taught by leading researchers in the field.

Our MSc Econ International Relations programme bridges the subfields of international relations theory, international security, political science and philosophy, international law, foreign policy analysis, diplomacy, international history and international political economy.

This programme provides a structure for the advanced study of an exciting disciplinary field. Specialist optional modules address a range of contemporary global concerns such as environmental politics, feminism, digital technologies and conflict management.

You’ll develop a full understanding of the development of the discipline of International Relations and will be able to pursue specialist interests within a general framework.

This programme will acquaint you with the main issues in International Relations, and will demonstrate how they have a bearing on a range of specialist areas of study. It is structured to give you the methodological tools necessary to conduct critical research in this broad and demanding field.

You’ll be introduced to the main theories and concepts in the field of International Relations through the programme’s core module, and to the practice of research in this field through the taught course on research methods and skills. After the completion of your coursework, you will write a dissertation on the topic of your choosing with the support of an academic supervisor.

Following a remarkable expansion in 2016, the International Relations team at the School of Law and Politics has become one of the largest in the UK. You will be taught by staff who are leading researchers in their fields and unlike other postgraduate International Relations programmes in the UK all of our modules are taught by permanent academic staff.
