Why study Master of International Relations?

Our world is being shaped by big questions about global justice, war, peace, social movements, and inter-state relations. These questions help define what this Master of International Relations is all about. In short, this degree offers students a window into the diverse and dynamic world of politics in the 21st century.

Topics covered explore the security, ethical, legal and economic dimensions of international relations. There are opportunities to examine key issues in foreign policy, world order, European studies, crisis management, and terrorism. In addition, new units exploring the gender, development, migration and governance aspects of global politics are being introduced.

The key aim of this course is to help students make sense of this complexity by providing the analytical perspectives and skills needed to see both the 'bigger picture' and comprehend the detailed aspects of specific issues.

All of our teaching staff are active researchers who incorporate their expertise into the program.

Students have the opportunity to study abroad, and to develop research interests in a number of areas, providing them with a potential pathway into a higher research degree.

Study areas

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS

International relations allows students to explore the many issues and questions raised by the rapidly changing nature of contemporary world politics, including: How are security issues to be understood in a fluid international system? How far can the consideration of ethical, normative and cultural issues contribute to the understanding of politics across state borders? How is globalisation affecting the sovereignty of states and the economic policies which governments pursue at home and abroad? What is the significance of issues such as human rights and the environment in contemporary international politics? What kind of world order, or disorder, is emerging in the aftermath of the twenty-first century?
