    Course description

    International Relations (IR) is one of the fastest growing sections of our Graduate Programme and an area in which we are investing significantly.  The MA course units on offer cover most of the field with a significant emphasis on the critical and normative dimensions of contemporary IR scholarship.  This pathway is less research training intensive and will suit those wishing to obtain a high-level specialist subject qualification. It will appeal particularly to those with an interest in the political and ethical issues which arise from current disparities in wealth and power in the international system.
