Master of International Relations

Our world is shaped by big questions about global justice, war, peace, social movements, and inter-state relations. The Master of International Relations enables you to deal critically and analytically with such questions, providing a window into the dynamic world of 21st-century politics.

The course explores the security, ethical, legal, and economic dimensions of international relations. You will examine key issues in foreign policy, world order, European studies, crisis management, and terrorism, as well as the gender, development, migration, and governance aspects of global politics. We offer four specializations:

  • Advanced international relations
  • Governance and security
  • International diplomacy and trade
  • Political violence and counter-terrorism

The Master of International Relations will help you make sense of the complexity of global politics and economics by giving you the analytical perspectives and skills to see both the 'bigger picture' and detailed aspects of specific issues, with a solid intellectual grounding in key debates, historical events, and political institutions.
