International Relations

Track description

The International Relations track reflects the existing traditions of IR scholarship in North America, the UK, and Western Europe especially. The department offers concentrations in, and faculty expertise on, Security Studies, International Political Economy and political and IR theory.

The track provides students with a variety of methodological tools and a deep grounding in disciplinary concepts and theories in order to enable them to both explain and understand the material and textual, social and technical factors that account for continuity and change in world politics.

Although therefore necessarily global in its outlook, the track has particular geographical expertise in Europe (eastern and western), Central Asia, MENA, and it is building up its expertise in South East Asia. Epistemologically and methodologically, the track draws upon both positivist and non-positivist approaches, with a concomitant commitment to pursuing traditional and critical scholarship.

IR faculty is involved in a variety of international research collaborations.
