Course summary

This course provides a critically important platform for understanding many of the key contemporary issues and debates of our times. This Master’s degree is an interdisciplinary programme, drawing upon politics, economics, history, sociology, international law, geography and cultural studies to explore global issues such as conflict, global inequalities, sovereignty and human rights. Students have the opportunity to examine complex political issues, such as religion and sectarianism, conflict and democratisation. The programme aims to prepare students for future study and research, as well as for potential employment in areas such as the diplomatic service, development agencies, the non-government sector, journalism, consultancy, international and regional organisations, and the public sector. Students join a thriving community of scholars and may have access to a range of extracurricular activities including external speakers and overseas study trips.

The MA International Relations places considerable emphasis on advanced research methods, enabling students to hone qualitative and quantitative research skills, and supporting them in becoming confident researchers in their own right. The programme draws on a range of subject specialisms within the School of Social and Political Sciences and connects students with tutors who are research leaders in their respective fields of study. The atmosphere in the School of Social and Political Sciences is collegial and friendly. All students are invited to attend the School’s research seminar series. Tutors are approachable and keen to support students on their personal research and career paths. Careers Services: The University Careers and Employability Team offer qualified advisors who can work with you to provide tailored, individual support and careers advice during your time at the University.
