You will investigate the major questions concerning contemporary
politics and international relations, and tackle the key issues facing
global decision makers.

The course’s inter-disciplinary approach reflects the broadening
nature of the subject beyond the confines of inter-state relations.
You will have the opportunity to undertake in-depth analysis of
specific international political issues, regions and specialisms, with
a particular focus on contemporary issues such as human rights and
security. There will also be scope to study optional topics of
particular interest to you.

Your lectures and seminars will be informed by the latest research,
and will draw on the specialist knowledge of our academic staff.
Delivered in the Faculty of Creative Industries and Society, the
course is suitable for graduates of humanities, social sciences, and
other relevant disciplines. The course may also be taken as a
‘conversion opportunity’ from fields such as Law and Business.
