M.Phil. in International Relations aims to enable students to analyze the complexities and processes involved in world politics and international affairs. Coursework provides exposure to the essential subfields of the discipline and relevant issues such as Regional Politics, Globalization, Conflicts and Strategic Issues facing States. Coursework includes International Relations Theory, International Security, International Political Economy, International Organization, and Foreign Policy Analysis.
The programme does not offer narrow, specialized education in theory and policymaking. Instead, it is designed to broaden students’ intellectual horizons by introducing them to various research-based conceptual perspectives on international relations and various substantive global issues.
