The aim of the MIR programme is:
- To prepare and develop graduates for a career in departments of government, politics, international relations, journalism and business
- To develop students’ intellectual capabilities of analysis and interpretation, critical evaluation, selection and synthesis, reasoned argument, research and problem solving
- To provide students with a research-active teaching environment which gives them an appropriate grounding in the study of international relations, including its political, social, and economic aspects
- To examine how state, non-state and supra-national actors behave and interact through a dynamic appreciation of different levels of analysis
- To ensure that students acquire a solid understanding of methodologies for the study of international processes
- To ensure that students acquire a solid knowledge of theories of international relations, the heritage and development of the discipline, its major debates, its inherent nature as an interdisciplinary study, and a critical appreciation of the essentially contested nature of politics in general and international relations in particular
- To ensure that students acquire an advanced understanding of the relationship between theoretical, methodological, and empirical content of the issue-areas studied
- To develop students’ general research skills and personal skills (transferable skills).
