MA International Relations

This is a broadly-based course of study designed for students who wish to gain a wide understanding of the theory, structure and working of the modern international system. It aims, first, to provide all students with a basic grounding in the theory of international relations and the different approaches that may be taken to the subject and, second, to enable students to gain a more detailed knowledge of those aspects of international relations in which they wish to specialise.
