International Relations is a vast discipline that cannot be ignored in this highly globalized and interconnected world. It engages you with the key international issues ranging from politics, security, economy, geography, environmental issues, human rights and religious intolerance and many more. It explores how nations and international institutions ought to respond to complex global problems in this rapidly changing era. . The department of international Relations targets both its students and policy makers. Our courses are designed to develop a strong conceptual background in our students and equip them with up-to-date information. This approach is beneficial for developing a trend of advanced research in the subject designed to equip policymakers and civil servants from across the globe to meet the challenges of the future, creating leaders capable of delivering the services that citizens expect today. Through education, research and public engagement, the department focuses on the most pressing foreign policy problems and international issues, ensuring that policy professionals are prepared with both the hard and soft skills necessary to understand how power, influence and change move through political circles.


Our vision is a world with a wider understanding of political power and process. This is what we study and this is what we teach.
