Now is an exciting time to be studying Politics, and our degree courses at the University of York places you at the heart of current political thinking, research and debate. The refugee crisis, epidemics like Ebola and Zika, terrorism, international conflict and nuclear tensions are just some of the issues that highlight how the complexity of international politics affects the lives of billions. This course will enable you to understand contemporary international events, their causes and repercussions in great depth, through theoretical debates – and how those debates resonate in distinct issue areas and contexts.
The MA in International Relations combines the advanced study of the core theoretical frameworks within the discipline of IR with in-depth exploration of a wide range of key themes and topics. The MA is targeted at students who want to combine a strong foundation in the theoretical debates of International Relations with an understanding of how those debates resonate in particular issue areas and contexts.
Through both the broad range of option modules that are available and the opportunity to research and write a dissertation on a topic of their choice, students can develop expertise in their own area of interest in International Relations. The programme is for graduates who wish to become researchers or academics in International Relations and allied fields, or who wish to use the advanced training and education that it provides in their career in the private or public sector.
York is regularly voted one of the best places to live and visit in the UK. The city was named the best place to live in Britain by The Sunday Times 2018. Our excellent cafés, restaurants and bars, innovative industries and mixture of modern and medieval architecture propelled it to the top of the list. With a population of 200,000, it’s big enough to feel lively but small enough to feel like home.
York is situated only 2 hours away from London and 1 and a half hours away from Manchester by train. The city benefits of some of the best train connections in the country, linking York to every corner of the UK.
