The RSIS masters programmes in International Relations, International Political Economy, Strategic Studies and Asian Studies provide a comprehensive selection of subjects with different focus areas to appeal to the diverse needs of our students. Each programme emphasises different subjects with a researchfocused approach. Students will find the courses useful for their fields in diplomacy and policy-making.

Teaching in the M.Sc. Programmes

The courses are taught via interactive seminars in a stimulating and lively intellectual environment. To ensure optimal interaction between faculty and students, the intake will be kept small. Candidates will also have to complete the “Professional Skills Enrichment” component. This involves participating in a number of seminars on research methods, as well as contemporary strategic and security issues. Students will also be exposed to eminent security and international relations scholars, discuss films and documentaries pertaining to security studies, and even learn media handling and conflict negotiation skills. Student performance will be assessed through a combination of examinations, assignments and seminar participation. Overall, the programmes will stress self development, encourage students to refine their analytical and policy-research skills, and provide a platform from which they can continue the process of self-education and career development.
