Program description

International Politics MA

During the International Politics MA you will learn to challenge yourself, your specific ideas and why you hold them.

We help you to untangle complicated concepts that shape our understanding of the world and identify their impact on global events.

This is a constantly evolving subject in a rapidly changing world. As such you will explore unique specialisms supported by up to the minute research.

You will graduate with the ability to undertake in-depth research, confidently challenge explanations of international politics and evaluate relationships between global bodies such as governments and transnational networks.

Admission requirements

If you want to widely explore and understand international politics before specialising your knowledge in one area, this programme is ideal.

Our programme is designed to give you the freedom to approach big global questions in your own individual way.
