Duration: Full-time: 1 year, Part-time: 2 years

Min. entry requirements: 2:i undergraduate degree (or equivalent) in Political Science or a related degree. In other cases it may be possible to apply for the Diploma with a view to upgrading to the MA subject to a satisfactory performance

This taught MA is one of the leading postgraduate programmes of its kind. You will be focusing on a region that has emerged as a consistent focal point for the study of international relations; the socio-political consequences of economic crises; and the impact of globalisation, among other contemporary global priorities.

This is not a traditional area studies course on East Asia, but rather a disciplinary degree that focuses on the region for its case studies. The degree combines a strong disciplinary and regional expertise. Our Department has drawn together one of the largest research and teaching clusters on East and South-East Asia in Europe. Many of these staff contribute to the delivery of the MA, so you will find them giving lectures or supervising your thesis on Asia focused topics.

Our IPEA graduates have ascended into highly competitive internships (e.g. UN in Thailand and UK Cabinet Office); roles in international business, NGOs and think-tanks; and doctorallevel study at Warwick and other top institutions
