Course summary

Overview

Our master's in international relations explores the intersection of finance, politics and international relations by examining the changing nature of financial systems, banking and regulation, and issues of governance.

The contemporary world is interconnected by global financial networks as never before. Global flows of money are pivotal in the twenty-first century world economy, yet are shaped by regulation in geographically specific ways to produce a dynamic financial landscape.

The increasing globalisation of financial and political networks is unquestionably leading to greater demand for qualified specialists to provide both basic and applied knowledge in this area. Our MSc International Financial and Political Relations directly addresses these requirements.

You will benefit from the wide-ranging, world-renowned expertise of our academic staff, all of whom are committed to high quality, research-informed teaching ensuring the very best learning experience.

We are recognised as a world leader for research in this field, with this ground-breaking, multi-disciplinary master's in international relations combining the disciplinary expertise of geographers, economists and political scientists to provide students with a unique opportunity to examine the contemporary geopolitics of the world economy.

This master's will give you:

an understanding of processes of contemporary globalisation as manifest in geographies of finance
a thorough understanding of the relationship between financial systems, banking and regulation, and issues of governance
a detailed appreciation of the working of current banking and financial markets
an awareness of the way forms of governance shape the political economy
experience of research techniques and methods used to undertake original research in this field
an ideal multi-disciplinary grounding to inform business and policy practice and to doctoral research in the social sciences.

Our master's in international relations is suitable for those interested in the impact of developments in banking, financial globalisation and international political relations on international financial and political development.
