  • Academic Title
    International Politics MA
  • Course description
    This new programme in International Politics covers the area of International Politics, International Security and Global Governance. The programme will be immediately relevant for students working in the fields of journalism, international organisations, NGOs, Human Rights, international finance and government.

    The programme provides an advanced study of international relations, international security, globalization and international political economy. The programme consists of 3 core modules on global politics, global security and conflict and social research methods. Students are free to choose from a wide range of other modules offered by other social science departments that are directly relevant to the study of International Politics.

    Each taught module is assessed by an essay or series of essays, an exam or a combination of the two i.e. an essay combined with an exam. Students also produce a dissertation of 15,000 words on an area linked to the taught modules. The Final MA classification is derived from a combination of essay and/or exam and dissertation marks.
