MA in International Politics and East Asia

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 doctoral-level study at Warwick and other top institutions.
