This MA addresses the fast-changing 'international' terrain including the 2008 economic crisis, EU fragmentation, questions of migration and human rights around the world.
It gives you the opportunity to explore the character of the contemporary world in an interdisciplinary manner, drawing upon a strong theoretical basis as well as an empirical grounding.
The programme offers great diversity in fields of study:
international relations, post-colonial theory, human rights, international political economy, war, genocide and post-conflict societies
areas of study – Europe, China, Japan, India, Latin America, Africa, the Middle East
methodology – empirical analysis and data collection, textual and discourse analysis, hermeneutic and philosophical enquiry
It also offers diverse subjects of study:
memory and justice
war and post-conflict
global political economy
gender, sexuality and the body in non-Western societies.
The MA is especially relevant if you are considering further study at PhD level, or if you want to work in areas where an understanding of international relations is essential (journalism, diplomacy, NGOs, international organisations, for example).
It offers valuable training and analytical skills for those working in non-governmental organisations, international institutions and corporations, diplomatic services, government offices, media industry and teaching.
