Masters Degrees in Politics & IR
MRES in International Relations
The structure of the MRes is similar to the Department’s MA programmes. Students take five taught modules in the Michaelmas and Lent terms and then go on to write a 15-20,000 word dissertation. The taught courses come partly from the Politics and International Relations MA modules and partly from courses offered as part of the Social Science Faculty’s Research Training Programme.
Students normally take the following two core modules offered by the Department:
However, on approval of the PG Director, and based on the student’s previous background and proposed path of research, one of the compulsory modules (either PPR410 or Introduction to the Philosophy of the Social Sciences) may be replaced by a different module chosen from those offered by the Department or, where appropriate, by a cognate department to reflect the student’s likely area of research.
MA Bursaries of £1000 each now available for 2015 entry.
