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.
The MA in International Relations at the University of East Anglia also includes study and discussion with academics, politicians and officials, as well as visits to international organisations and non-governmental bodies and think tanks, such as the European Institute for Asian Studies, ICRC, WHO and UNESCO.
We have an office in Brussels in association with the East of England European Partnership. The office provides a base for our teaching and employability activities, and as a postgraduate student, you will be able to use its facilities to carry out research and write your dissertation.
