What Will You Study

Through this programme we encourage you to consider the practical processes, ideological dynamics and theoretical dimensions involved in the interface of diplomacy/foreign policy and religion. You have the opportunity to develop analytical skills in the field of religious studies and international relations and will also be encouraged to engage in cross-disciplinary research, notably with the MA dissertation.

Our programme may be especially relevant if you currently work in, or are thinking about working in, diplomacy, international NGOs, and international policy and politics. Core modules are supported by selected Politics modules.

Previously, we have also invited practitioners with experience in the field to contribute to elements of the programme. Where possible we also aim to include trips that are relevant to the topics being covered that year, for example, in the past, students have visitited the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London. Where trips are offered, students are normally expected to cover their own travel expenses.
