MSc in International Cultural Relations

From 2018: Online MSc in International Cultural Relations

This Postgraduate MSc degree will offer both theoretical and practical understanding of how international relationships are formed, and influence operates, across borders in an increasingly interdependent world. It will contribute to understanding the roles of culture, science, and education in the global political economy, the conduct of international relations and in meeting complex challenges. 

The Masters courses will offer two main pathways – to theory and practice - and there will be opportunities for students to pursue thematic areas such as International Relations, or Arts and Culture, based on the varied expertise of Schools across the University.

The MSc will be offered through online distance learning with blended learning options. Normally this will take about three years. The online learning programme will offer flexible exit routes, allowing students to shape their academic journey to suit their needs. The online programme will involve the same level of work overall as the on-campus programme, and the qualification is of equal value.

Recognising the globally relevant nature of the subject, we are exploring options for delivery of the online course in languages other than English, though this development may be available later than 2017.
