The MA in International Relations is dually accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and validated by The Open University. We offer a rigorous curriculum encompassing theoretical and practical developments in the dynamic field of global politics, set in the vibrant context of cosmopolitan London, in an international classroom, which gives graduates distinct advantages in developing vital inter-personal and intercultural communication skills.
The degree can lead to eventual careers in roles that require articulate, clear thinking individuals with a grasp of contemporary events, including government, international organisations, business, finance and the media. The background of the MA faculty will enable students to develop an appreciation of the nuance in international relations, which, combined with the internship, will help prepare students for further graduate study or careers in related fields.
Students must complete an approved programme of 33 credits including a 9-credit Internship and related thesis project and eight 3-credit courses as defined below. Students require a cumulative GPA across the entire 33-credit degree of 3.0, for each semester. Students may not proceed to subsequent semesters without a 'B' average. Students must pass all aspects of the course and may not graduate untill all components, including the thesis, have been successfully completed.
