Every complicated matter should have means to study it. Being one of the most twisted and intricate contemporary phenomena, politics requires a science to put the things straight and back in order. A Master in Political Science can teach the complicated philosophy and theory, as well as critical thinking and analytical skills required in this challenging and ever-changing field.

A Master in Political Science is interdisciplinary, intersecting with other subjects and studies, such as National Politics, Public Policy, Economics, Law, Psychology and Sociology. Usually, Political Science is subdivided into three disciplines that deal with different aspects of the vast matter of politics. The highly abstract but very important matters of legal code, justice, rights, and liberty are in the competence of Political Philosophy; whereas the study of International Relations is about bringing order and system into the process of interaction between nations and states, including peace and conflict studies. And last but not least, Comparative Politics is the third subfield of Political Science; it is based upon a practical approach towards the state and government as a systematic matter, for comparison is one of the oldest and most secure methods of research. Master in Political Science programs delve deep into these three subfields, and also allows students to concentrate on a specialized area of interest.

If the thrill of politics is for you, don’t hesitate to read the descriptions of different Master in Political Science programs. Choose the Master in Political Science program that suits you best and contact the school by sending the "Request free information” form!

How does climate change reshape global politics? What will the world look like with the rise of China as a new superpower? Can regional conflicts shift the international power balance? How will a mainly urbanised world sustain itself? As the international scene becomes increasingly complex, understanding the fundamentals of how people, governments, international institutions and the environment interact is becoming increasingly important. If you are interested in understanding the intersections of space and politics then the MA in Geopolitics is specifically designed for you. Contemporary issues require advanced analysis that recognises the intersections of space, power and politics. From security challenges to cultural practices or climate change; from the global to every day, the connections between politics and space are increasingly complex. Integrating historical, cultural and political perspectives, the MA Geopolitics at QUB is an innovative interdisciplinary programme that seeks to build the knowledge and skills needed to engage these challenges. Taught by academic experts in Human Geography, Politics and International Relations, with a broad range of regional expertise and research perspectives, this new MA enables students to explore the questions which are shaping our lives. It is not just for geographers, international relations students, and political scientists but anyone with an interest in the core course themes. You will come to understand these intersections through a range of themes developed across the modules. These include nations, states, landscapes, mobilities, urban spaces, environmental change, sovereignty, identity, gender, empire and postcolonial relations, territory and borders, the politics of human rights and others. You can either specialise or learn across a range of issues such as culture, media, ethics, security and conflict, environmental politics, and democratic participation. You will be taught by experts in regions including East Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America, the Middle East, the UK and Ireland. As you engage the intersections of space, power and politics you will develop advanced conceptual and analytic skills and subject knowledge needed to explore their intersections in a range of historic and contemporary issues. These skills will enable you to investigate problems shaping environments, places and landscapes and to challenge accepted wisdom. They are also particularly important skills for those pursuing careers in all sectors of government and the public sector, NGOs, international corporations, regional and international agencies, media and information industries. -
