Master of International Relations Extension
The Master of International Relations Extension is designed for graduates seeking careers that address international issues across government, international and non-government organisations, and international business. It will also suit those currently employed in internationally focused positions who are interested in upgrading their knowledge and skills.
You will have the opportunity to undertake experiential-oriented subjects focused on humanitarian and development assistance through UOW’s partnership with RedR Australia at their campus in Victoria. This is a unique opportunity with an internationally recognised provider of humanitarian training programs, who are recognised both by United Nations agencies and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
This course is for graduates of an undergraduate degree in an unrelated discipline, or for students who wish to complete additional coursework.
The Master of International Relations Extension will advance your understanding of global security, peace and conflict, human rights, international law, political economy, development and humanitarian assistance, foreign policy, forced migration, and environmental politics. You will develop the skills to understand and respond to some of the most critical issues in the world today, as you explore key theoretical concepts in international relations and learn how they apply across a broad range of contemporary issues.
Our industry partnership offers an internship program with hands-on training, something which is attractive to future employers. You will also have the opportunity to undertake student exchange or study at our UOW Dubai campus.
What you will study
International Relations at UOW builds on your theoretical knowledge about the complex global landscape. You will develop strong critical and creative-thinking skills, while undertaking independent research, collaborative projects and policy analysis.
You can choose a research-focused degree, culminating in a major project or thesis. Or expand your knowledge across a range of issues, completing your degree with a capstone experience.
This course will be available to commence in 2022.
