Programme Overview

Duration: 1 year

Language: English

Programme Title: International Relations

Degree Awarded: MA Political Science

The International Relations MA has been designed in an innovative way to provide students with the knowledge, skills and competencies needed to critically analyse and interpret the key theoretical debates of post-modern political theories with a special focus on international relations and conflict resolution.

Key Disciplines Covered:

  • International Interventions
  • City and Politics: Public space
  • Notion of the Political
  • Biopolitics & Necropolitics
  • Political Advertising & Promotion

One of the strongest points of our programme is the discussion of International Relations approaches within a multicultural classroom environment, given the global background of our students. Indeed, some of these debates are currently reproduced in numerous international organisations and negotiations worldwide. MIUC trains the next generation of policy leaders to tackle the complex issues of a globalising world.

MIUC International Relations Department presents students with a unique blend of theory and practice tailored to a challenging international and multicultural scenario that often changes faster than our capacity to analyse it.
