International Relations Degrees: Graduate

Our guide to graduate-level international relations looks at the history of the subject, the career paths it can open for you and what your options are if you choose to study it at graduate level.

The subject, according to Dr Ian Hall of Australian National University (ANU), is defined by the study of “a diverse set of political, economic, social and environmental interactions between sovereign states, international organizations, non-governmental organizations, multi-national corporations and civil society actors at a global, regional or inter-state level.”

The world’s first course in the subject was offered by Aberystwyth University in the UK in 1919. The purpose? To try and understand why the devastating World War which had taken place over the preceding four years had happened; and how such a brutal war could be avoided in the future.
