International Relations MA Welcome Pack

Welcome to MA International Relations 2022.

The course has been taught for almost 20 years by the Politics and IR subject group offering a 1 year long course that covers a substantial range of contemporary, and more broadly post-2nd world war debates via modules on recent as well as traditional IR theories, on the status and power relations within ‘post-Soviet space; sub-Saharan Africa, American foreign policy, European/EU politics, China, as well as wide ranging reviews on the stability (or otherwise) of  international organisations.

Some modules are taught across 7, and others across 14 weeks for 3 hours per week.

Students are drawn from many parts of the world and as such, we aim to provide a structured and highly supportive environment for each one of you. You will have a named personal tutor as well as extensive opportunities to be in contact through every week with other tutors.
