New MSc in International Relations of the Americas

Publication date:

The UCL Institute of the Americas is pleased to announce it is now accepting applications for the new MSc in International Relations of the Americas. This new MSc programme is uniquely focused on the international relations of the Americas in their entirety.  No other course anywhere else offers a comparable opportunity to study and research the foreign policies of this continent. The hemisphere is home to the world's most important power and a number of emergent powers.  The nation-states within it confront geopolitical, geo-economic, environmental, human rights, and international drug control issues that have global significance.  They are also engaged in a pivot away from a traditional Atlantic focus to an Asia-Pacific one that will have immense significance in shaping the power structure of the twenty-first century world.  This is a programme that will benefit anyone looking to develop a career in diplomacy, the media, think-tank research, international organizations, and commerce.
