University of Western Australia Graduate Diploma in International Relations

About The Course

The course develops your capacity to collect and interpret information; to analyse arguments, policies and developments; and to construct cogent verbal and written arguments on international relations subjects. The course also enhances your understanding of the ways in which knowledge of international relations is utilised, including in professional employment. These are skills of value in a range of occupations in business, government and non-government organisations. Examine topics such as political economy, security and conflict. You'll explore the mechanisms and decisions through which trade, production and finance have been globalised, and the impacts of these processes. You'll also study key relationships between security and globalisation, transnationalism and regionalism, as well as core concepts such as the security dilemma, securitisation and security communities.
