Course Summary

Terrorism, migration, poverty, war, climate change, famine, disease pandemics, gender inequality, financial crises, transnational crime, underdevelopment: these are some of the issues that can only be fully understood through global politics.

Focusing on the big questions, our MA International Relations will equip you with the knowledge and skills to grapple with these challenges, helping you understand their causes and consequences within the international system.

Highlights of our course include a trip to Brussels, with visits to the EU and NATO, the opportunity to study with academics, politicians and officials, as well as visits to international organisations and non-governmental bodies and think tanks.

OVERVIEW

International Relations looks at the big questions within global politics. These include issues surrounding war, peace, conflict and security, as well as a range of other important transnational dynamics, such as global economics, the environment, human rights, religion and migration.

Whatever your background, this flexible and cross-disciplinary MA will have much to offer. Perhaps you have a degree in international relations, politics, economics, law or business studies, but you’re now looking to specialise. Perhaps you studied geography, environmental studies or economics, and are interested in the wider applications of your knowledge. Or maybe you simply have a keen interest in global politics, but no formal experience in any of these subjects.

We organise an annual trip to Brussels for our MA students, during which we visit the EU and NATO, where there will be opportunities to speak to officials and military personnel about their work. And we meet graduates from UEA who are now working in or near Brussels. Other visits within our programme have included trips to Paris, Kortrijk in Flanders, and Geneva.
