Significance of International Studies

The process of globalization, particularly in the 21st century, has ushered in an unprecedented inter-connectivity of countries around the world through the movement of people, goods, capital, and through linkages of ideas and cultures. Contrary to popular belief, this global connectivity is not restricted to the realm of trade and economics alone, it encompasses and deeply influences the cultural, environmental, legal, political and social dimensions of societies all over the world, thus, bringing forth opportunities and challenges alike. The discipline of International Studies (IS) positions itself at the cross-roads where the dominant cultural, economic, political and social issues that exercise an influence on the national, regional and international agenda converge. A Master’s programme in International Studies encourages students to relate theoretical concepts to specific, relevant world issues and challenges in international affairs today.
