University of Portsmouth
We live in an increasingly turbulent world, wracked by conflict, instability and insecurity. The roots of these problems are highly complex; the challenges involved in delivering greater peace and prosperity cannot be under-estimated. This course is designed for those who recognise the importance of acquiring advanced intellectual skills to be able to understand and analyse current trends in global politics. It studies a broad sweep of issues in international relations, including the rise of fundamentalist terrorism, the resurgence of Russia, the spread of globalisation and the emergence of new regional powers on the world stage. We are the only university in the UK that offers an internship with the BBC Afrique World Service in Senegal. This opportunity is available to students with French language skills on MA International Relations or MA European Politics.
Core modules: Global governance; challenges to EU politics and governance; contemporary security in international relations (providers and challenges); dissertation/major project. Optional modules: Europe (integration and democratisation); France and Africa (from the colonial to the contemporary era); nation and identity in Europe; Europe and the world; negotiation and lobbying in the EU (a simulation game); independent project; work-based learning.
The course is delivered through a combination of lectures and seminars in the afternoons and evenings. Part-time students who may be in employment are usually able to structure their course over two years such that tuition is concentrated on no more than two afternoons and evenings per week. Assessment for most units on the course is in the form of an extended essay or project plus a 15,000-word dissertation at the end.
