Course summary

International Relations looks at the big questions within global politics. These include issues surrounding war, peace, conflict and security, as well as a range of other important transnational dynamics, such as global economics, the environment, human rights, religion and migration.

Whatever your background, this flexible and cross-disciplinary MA will have much to offer. Perhaps you have a degree in international relations, politics, economics, law or business studies, but you’re now looking to specialise. Perhaps you studied geography, environmental studies or economics, and are interested in the wider applications of your knowledge. Or maybe you simply have a keen interest in global politics, but no formal experience in any of these subjects.

The course also includes study and discussion with academics, politicians and officials, as well as visits to international organisations and non-governmental bodies and think tanks, such as the European Institute for Asian Studies, International Committee of the Red Cross, World Health Organization and UNESCO. All of these opportunities will be subject to government health advice.

ABOUT

This degree offers students a unique opportunity to gain a double MA degree from UEA and Ritsumeikan University in Japan. Students will spend their first year at UEA then spend their second year at Ritsumeikan University, subject to government health advice at the time.

You will study the big questions of global politics: Terrorism, poverty, war, climate change, famine, disease pandemics, gender inequality, financial crises, transnational crime and underdevelopment.?

Our double MA will equip you with the knowledge and skills to grapple with these challenges, helping you understand their causes and consequences within the international system.?

Highlights of our course include a trip to Brussels, which we hope to run this year but this will be subject to government health advice at the time. The trip is expected to include visits to the European Union and NATO, opportunities to study with academics, politicians and officials, and visits to international organisations and non-governmental bodies and think tanks.
