Politics and International Relations Masters Degrees

We offer a range of opportunities for graduate study in politics, international relations, diplomacy, security, development, conflict resolution and peace studies.

The programmes are designed to prepare students for further academic work and to provide high-level training for those pursuing careers in such areas as foreign and international affairs, national and international non-governmental organisations, journalism and international business.

Our aim is to provide graduate students with teaching and supervision by leading scholars in their fields, but in addition we involve politicians, diplomats, civil servants and journalists in the delivery of the programmes. There are also opportunities for inter-disciplinary postgraduate study, both within the department (with Philosophy and Religious Studies) and with the Law Department.

The programmes start in October and (for full-time students) run to the end of September in the following year. Students take a combination of core and elective modules.
