Study how states and international organisations use their power to shape developments in international relations. The Master of International Relations offers demanding postgraduate study on key international topics, ranging from Asia Pacific security to crises in the global economy. While drawing on theory, the primary focus is on real-world issues, providing students with academic insights to help devise concrete responses to the pressing global problems of our time. Tailor the degree to your interests and career aspirations though our flexible study plan. Gain real-world experience through our international exchange and internship options. And undertake a specialised research project in your area of interest that will qualify you for a higher research degree. The degree is particularly useful for professionals who seek to enhance their career opportunities, for those who have embarked on a career but wish to change sectors, and recent graduates who wish to sharpen their skills. The degree provides formal academic preparation for people who wish to work in professional fields in the government, NGO and private sectors that require a detailed understanding of the international political and economic context. Students will be able to tailor their subject choices beyond disciplinary cores through an extensive list of electives. Students have the option to write an extended research thesis, go on student exchange, and do an internship. Students are strongly encouraged to consult with Dr Daniel Bray (d. bray@latrobe. edu. au) to tailor electives to support their interests and career aspirations.
