Master of International Relations / Master of International Law

Master of International Relations / Master of International Law

The dual masters will allow students to understand the links between international politics and international law, including how political events can shape international legal decision making; the impact of law on trade, international security, and other political issues; and how politics and law mutually shape each other.

Students will study four core courses in each degree. In international relations, these courses introduce the history of the international system; theoretical approaches to international relations; security in the international system, and international political economy. In international law, one compulsory course introduces public international law, and the remaining three focus on international law in action and the nexus between international law and domestic law. Students then choose from a series of elective courses from both degrees to suit personal growth and interest.
