International Relations

The MSc Econ International Relations provides a structure for the advanced study of an exciting disciplinary field. The programme bridges the sub-fields of international security, international relations theory, international law, foreign policy analysis, political philosophy and political science. Specialist optional modules address a range of contemporary global concerns such as environmental politics, feminism, digital technologies and conflict management. You will develop a full understanding of the development of the discipline of International Relations (IR), and will be able to pursue specialist interests within a general framework. The programme will acquaint you with the main issues in IR, and will demonstrate how they have a bearing on a range of specialist areas of study. The programme is structured to give you the methodological tools necessary to conduct critical research in this broad and demanding field. You will be introduced to the nature of research in this field through the taught course in research methods and skills, and will subsequently undertake self-directed research for the dissertation with the support of an academic supervisor.
