Description:

As a postgraduate student in the Department of Political Science and International Studies (POLSIS) you will have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of events. You will also be welcomed as a member of the International Relations and Security Theory research group. This group includes members of academic staff and postgraduate research students who meet regularly to discuss their own research, recent publications and to organise research events including inviting visiting speakers.

The course covers both long established fields of study such as war, security, foreign policy and diplomacy and new research agendas such as rising powers, global justice, and gender issues. The core aims are to provide an introduction to International Relations Theory for those students new the subject and to ground theoretical studies in a range of concrete puzzles, problems and dilemmas. Gradually, week by week, we will develop a deep knowledge and understanding of this diverse field. A further aim is to prepare you to conduct independent research and analyses of international politics.
