Comments about Master International Politics and Religion - At the institution - London - Greater London

  • Objectives
    This course is designed to examine key themes concerning the relationship between international politics and religion. It focuses, firstly, on the claims of the major religious faiths concerning the proper relationship between faith and citizenship. It will then, secondly, examine the development of this relationship across different regions of the globe. Finally, it seeks to provide you with the necessary skills and techniques to conduct research in this area. The Governance and International Relations Section (City campus) has a well-established reputation for research undertaken by its staff in Politics, International Relations, Development Studies and American Studies. In the UK Higher Education Funding Council Research Assessment Exercise in 2001 (the most recent), the Section was rated 3a for its research in Politics and International Relations (ie. national excellence, with evidence of international excellence in some areas).
