Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, the University will endeavour to consult with students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will inform students.

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. And you will be taught by leading authorities in the field. The 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) rated 70% of UEA's research in Politics and International Studies as world leading or internationally excellent.
