about programme

Geopolitical Studies (GPS) is a two-year English-language Master's degree programme, which seeks to explore the dynamic relationship between International Politics and Human Geography, focussing on essential theories, thinkers and regions. As newer boundaries are created between us and maps constantly re-drawn the world over, in a world that is still being described as borderless, it is therefore important consider why this is happening. The programme will combine the strengths of the Institute of Political Studies’ strongest departments, Political Geography and Security Studies to create a unique opportunity for students to focus on a key aspect of today’s Political study. The programme is deliberately structured to take advantage of the multidisciplinary nature of the Institute of Political Studies and the Faculty, and students will be encouraged to make connections between different fields of study, learning to combine a global perspective with attention to detail and local interests. It is an excellent stepping stone in developing an academic career in the field of Political Science, as well as a valuable source of analytical skills and practical background knowledge that can be applied in professional life.
