Course summary

About the course

Globalisation and recent wars dramatise the enduring importance of world affairs to government, economics and people’s lives. If you are interested in a career focusing on global politics, this programme is for you. It is aimed at degree-holders with an interest in the theory and practice of world politics.

The degree aims to impart a broad and balanced knowledge of international relations theory at an advanced level. It provides core training in political analysis and methodology of the social sciences. It examines contemporary global problems and rival approaches to their solution and offers specialisation in particular areas such as foreign policy analysis, global society, regional integration, global environmental politics, and strategic and security studies.

This MA prepares graduates for careers in media, academia, non-governmental organisations, international business, research think-tanks and government foreign service.

What you'll study

Our International Politics programme is made up of core and optional modules and a 15,000-word dissertation.

You will learn up-to-date approaches to international relations studies and more general skills in writing, research, public speaking and logical analysis through interactive seminars guided by experts in the subject.

Future prospects

This MA provides students with the expert skills and knowledge for a career in political consultancy, the media, the Civil Service, public relations, political parties, parliament and charities on a national or international scale.

Many of our Masters students choose to progress to further study at PhD level. Our staff are research-active with specialisms including strategic studies, international relations theory, international law, foreign policy, political theory, European integration and the critique of violence.
