Debating International Relations.

This module offers an advanced level appreciation of the theory and practice of international relations. It will provide you with a detailed understanding of the rival theoretical perspectives in the study of international relations and the issues that divide them, and will encourage you to consider whether the seemingly irreconcilable differences these competing approaches can be overcome. On this module, you will also examine a range of important issues in contemporary international politics, and in doing so consider the future of the study of international relations in the context of profoundly important patterns of global change.


  • This module is typically taught through a weekly programme of lectures and seminars over the 12-week semester.


  • The module is typically assessed through two pieces of individual coursework.
