This degree will provide a comprehensive analysis of contemporary international relations in the post-Cold War period. By taking this course you will have the opportunity to study a range of international issues but especially to investigate whether international relations in the post-Cold War period has been founded upon a Western model of 'World Order'.
  • The course will introduce you to differing concepts of order in the post-Cold War world. It will enable you to think critically about the nature of international relations: about the extent to which Western interests, institutions and culture dominate the world system and the challenges and responses generated by that dominance. The course focuses on both theoretical and empirical approaches to this subject.
  • You will complete two core modules, including one which will critically examine the means by which the West maintains its concept of 'Order'. You can then choose two option modules which, along with your dissertation, allow you to specialise in areas that interest you or complement your professional goals.
  • As well as equipping you with a detailed understanding of contemporary international relations, this degree will develop your ability to think both analytically and critically and to produce reasoned arguments encompassing your increased knowledge and understanding of the issues.
  • Distance learning gives you the flexibility to fit your study around existing commitments and enhance your career prospects without having to leave employment.
