This Graduate Certificate is a subset of the Master of International Relations program and allows students to undertake a program of multi-disciplinary, postgraduate study but it entails a lesser commitment than that required for either the Graduate Diploma or Master program. It is designed for students without a background in the field of international relations. Upon successful completion, students may decide to proceed into the Graduate Diploma or full Master program. Units available for study within the program include those available within the Graduate Diploma of International Relations. This is a flexible and real-world focused degree that examines the power-political, economic, cultural, legal and institutional forces that influence relations between the major players in the international system.
